Vedic Extensions Unicode Block
The Unicode Vedic Extensions block is a subset of the Unicode Standard that was introduced to accommodate characters and symbols used in the ancient Vedic scripts of India. These scripts, such as Devanagari, Brahmi, and others, have been historically employed for the transcription of sacred Hindu texts like the Vedas and Upanishads. The Vedic Extensions block includes a range of characters, diacritics, and numerals specific to Vedic and Sanskrit texts, allowing for accurate representation and preservation of these important cultural and religious artifacts in digital formats. This block is a valuable addition to Unicode, as it supports the accurate representation of Vedic texts and ensures their accessibility in modern computing and digital communication.
