This is kind of a spin off from an older question I asked.
- In the bottom left is URxvt, and you can see a lighting bolt-like icon at the beginning of the prompt, that's
- in the bottom right is
xfce-terminalfrom Xfce, and you can see that it renders the very same
"\ue00a"Unicode point in a very different way!
I was under the impression that when I read something like
"\u1d43d" and so on, I'm most likely looking at the identity of a symbol, as defined by Unicode.
However, how strange would the definition need to for it to allow 2 terminal emulators to show it so differently?
Incidentally, I don't know how much of this is due to the terminals and how much to the fonts.
I am asking this question (like the other I linked) in order to get a better understanding of the whole matter.
