What is the Symbol font? (Definition)

The font named Symbol is used on the Microsoft Windows operating system, it contains in particular the letters of the Greek alphabet, used as symbols in physics, mathematics and more generally in science. Today supplanted by the possibilities of Unicode coding, this font is no longer recommended.

How to write using Symbol font?

Achar(65)Bchar(66)Cchar(67)Dchar(68)Echar(69)Fchar(70)Gchar(71)Hchar(72)
Ichar(73)Jchar(74)Kchar(75)Lchar(76)Mchar(77)Nchar(78)Ochar(79)Pchar(80)
Qchar(81)Rchar(82)Schar(83)Tchar(84)Uchar(85)Vchar(86)Wchar(87)Xchar(88)
Ychar(89)Zchar(90)achar(97)bchar(98)cchar(99)dchar(100)echar(101)fchar(102)

Example: dCode corresponds to char(100)char(67)char(111)char(100)char(101)

The characters are partially similar to the original message because the Symbol font uses, among other things, Greek letters having inspired the Latin alphabet.

How to read / decrypt a Symbol cipher?

The reading / decryption of the Symbol font consists in associating each glyph/symbol the corresponding character in the ASCII table.

Example: char(83)char(121)char(109)char(98)char(111)char(108) is decrypted SYMBOL.

How to recognize the Symbol font?

The Symbol font uses Greek characters (alpha, beta, gamma, delta, epsilon, etc.) in uppercase and lowercase letters. The writing also contains some characters used in mathematics.
