How to use all the characters? (2012-01-15 07:39 by pkhunter #61699)

I notice inside this font that there are many symbols, numbers, even Chinese characters. This is great.

My questions:

1. How can i use these symbols? For example, the dingbat type icons, where do they get used?

2. I want to serve this font as a webfont. I want to compress the font for this purpose. Right now the TTF is 3MB. So it's quite large. I cannot even use this on FontSquirrel's webfont generator site because they only accept 2MB TTF uploads to convert it into EOT, WOFF, etc. Do you have any recommendation or any downloadable files for compressed version of this font, which is lower than 100KB?

Thanks so much!

Suppose you're talking about the M+ OUTLINE FONTS.

I use "Character Viewer" on Mac OS X, and I don't know about Windows.

The following programs would be useful.
