The first series, named series 100 or (ITC-100) has been integrated as a character font and has equivalences with printable ASCII characters. It is therefore possible to encode messages with a correspondence table:
Example: The word Dingbat is written ✤❉■❇❂❁▼
Each Zapf symbol corresponds to an ASCII character, so decryption is obtained by substitution.
Example: ✺,❁,❐,❆ is decoded Z,a,p,f
The Dingbats 100 series contains scissors, crosses, check marks, pencils and pens, stars, flowers, as well as some squares, circles and triangles.
The Unicode block U+2700 to U+2760 contains the vast majority of Zapf 100 series glyphs.
