This font implements a (non-ISO2047-conforming) set of modernized graphical representations for the nonprintable characters of 7-bit ASCII, namely 00-1F, 20 (SPACE), and 7F (DELETE). They are assigned to Unicode code points 2400-2421 (in the Control Pictures block) to avoid confusion with the actual nonprintable characters themselves.

This font is for representing the nonprintable characters of 7-bit ASCII using symbols that are more meaningful and intuitive (at least, in a modern context) than those of the ISO-2047 symbol set. Extensive discussion of these choices can be found at .
First 17 symbols:

A lot of work has gone into this - well done. 10/10

@p2pnut: Thanks. I'm actually thinking of revising the separator characters 1C-1F soon to something a little more descriptive; the current choices for those were based on symbols available in Arial Unicode MS (which is what I was using for this purpose before I created this font).

Check out ModControl2 and see if you like the symbols for the separator characters in that one better.

Minor revision 3/19/13: Corrected baseline, eliminated extra pixel of width, minor improvement to stopwatch icon (in SYN symbol).
