Home Forums JavaScript Marking fallback characters Reply To: Marking fallback characters


Don’t suppose there’s been any update on this? In the same boat.

The only close solution I can find is detecting if a font is installed, not detecting if a glyph is missing.

If you want a good indication if a special character is missing visually, you can set the next fallback to serif if you’re using a fancy sans-serif font. E.g:

font-family: "totally-fancy-sans-font", serif;

The missing characters will stick out like a sore thumb.
