Greek

των δε Ιουδαιων ουδεις ενιψατο τας χειρας, ουδε Ηρωδης ουδ εις των κριτων αυτου, και των βουληθεντων νιψασθαι. ανεστη Πειλατος, και τοτε κελευει Ηρωδης ο βασιλευς παραλημφθηναι τον κυριον, ειπων αυτοις οτι Οσα εκελευσα υμιν ποιησαι αυτω, ποινσατε. Ηκει δε εκει Ιωσηφ ο φιλος Πειλατου και του κυριου, και ειδως οτι σταυρισκειν αυτον μελλουσιν, ηλθεν προς τον Πειλατον και ητησε το σωμα του κυριου προς ταφην. και ο Πειλατος πεμψας προς Ηρωδην ητησεν αυτου το σωμα, και ο Ηρωδης εφη αδελφε Πειλατε, ει και μη τις αυτον ητηκει ημεις αυτον εθαπτομεν, επει και σαββατον επιφωσκαι γεγραπται γαρ εν τω νομω ηλιον μη δυναι επι πεφονευμενω προ μιας των αζυμων - της εοπτης αυτων.

Powerline Symbols

Usually the Powerline symbols are placed at E0A0, but this conflicts with Cirth, so Fairfax places them at FF0A0.

Symbols for Legacy Computing

Symbols for Legacy Computing is a block of characters for a future version of Unicode (it is not part of Unicode 12.0.0) but Fairfax already includes it, as well as related characters in the Private Use Area that cannot be encoded (the Apple and Atari logos and the image of J.R. “Bob” Dobbs).

NOTICE: These characters have not yet been frozen for publication in any version of the Unicode Standard, and are still subject to change without notice. It is not recommended to use these characters publicly at this time. They are included for private, experimental use only.

These characters add support for Teletext:

While Fairfax does include all the glyphs required for Tengwar, it does not provide any instructions for proper rendering, so your tehtar may not appear correctly.
