A script is a collection of characters that share common characteristics of appearance, typical behaviours, history of development, and that would be identified as being related by some community of users.

The table on the script overview page lists scripts recognised by the ISO 15924 Registration Authority and given a four character code for identification purposes. It also includes some scripts not yet recognized by ISO 15924. The list can be sorted by clicking on the table headings. Click on the script name for more detailed information.

If you know of a script that is not shown in the list it may be that the script has an alternate name. You can search for that name using the search bar at the top of that page. If you still cannot find the script, contact us.
