A. To put characters other than ISO-8859-1 into an SVG graphic, you need to use the correct Unicode character values. They can be entered directly, using a Unicode-enabled editor or they can be typed as numeric character references. For example: &#x1122 (This is a Korean character.) The Adobe SVG viewer supports US-ASCII, ISO-8859-1, UTF-16, and UTF-8 encodings. For example: This לSVG. Then to display the characters, the correct font needs to be installed. Adobe Illustrator will create a small “CEF” font so that anyone can view the SVG – even if they don’t have the font installed. For more information, please see the Unicode links in the Community section.
