<li>Print out listings of the following Unicode blocks: <strong>Dingbats</strong> (2700–27BF), <strong>Miscellaneous Symbols</strong> (2600–26FF) and eventually <strong>Miscellaneous Symbols and Arrows</strong> (2B00–2BFF). It is important you include the descriptions in the language of your choice. Below are German, English and French sample files.</li>
<li>Contextualize the Dictée by showing <a href="">this</a> picture for example.
<li>One person selects a number of descriptions he or she finds interesting</li>
<li>Read out the number, followed by it&#8217;s description</li>
<li>Allow participants a set time to come up with a proposal that fits the description. Depending on the medium of choice, rhythm can vary: pencil up to 30 seconds; cutting or digital drawing: up to 10 minutes.</li>
<li>Compare results of participants to each other and to official Unicode blocks</li>

				<p>you&#8217;re welcome &#8211; this were just a fast edit, for the case you may want to replace on the website &#8211; anyway, the accents are still disproportionate and maladjusted, but i think they work relativelly fine for now &#8211; anyway, i&#8217;m trying to contact the original author, Sebastien Sanfilippo (if you have a closer contact with him, please let me/us know, and please let him know about this version as well! thanks!)</p>

				<p>Hey Paulo, </p>
<p>Seb is here with us in Brussels <img src='' alt=':-)' class='wp-smiley' />  He is also very happy to find out about your additions! I think he answered your e-mail yesterday and asked to add yourself to the fontlog?</p>

				<p>yes, i replied his mail, and added some more stuff &#8211; but all i were about to do were very in a rush, and not very acuraced as well, since i were not the original author of the typeface, didn&#8217;t test it enough (well, i think Dave Crossland will pull my ears after seeing these fixes! <img src='' alt=':D' class='wp-smiley' />  ) &#8211; my concern were this typeface is, even looking great, is still incomplete for an usage in these webfont titles here, and i tried to do an effort on this typeface being a bit less incomplete&#8230; &#8211; as far as i can, i&#8217;ll try to work better on this typeface, and maybe improve better the accents and ligatures i added &#8211; but anyway, there are lots of missing characters i have no idea how to drawn them (like 0-9) in the A-Z-a-z visual context&#8230;</p>
