Select Unicode code range and test for visible characters?
Don't worry if you can't see everything
This test goes from the very simple to the very advanced.
Any modern browser should be able to handle all of these code points,
but if your operating system is not setup properly the browser will display
the default character, usually a square or a question mark.
For any code block, If you see squares or question marke or
some other default character, it means that
1) Your computer is not enabled for that language yet
2) You do not have the fonts for that code block, or they are not set properly
3) Sometimes you will see squares at the end of a code block because
Unicode has not defined those code points.
Unicode alocates the following code points Unicode Character Sets and their encodings: (U+0000" to U+10FFFF)
The following two .pdf files show graphical representations of all the Unicode code points
so you will know what you should be seeing.
PDF Unicode 4.0 CodeCharts
PDF Unicode 5.2 Alternates CJK CodeCharts
The code points are in planes as follows
Unicode BMP (Basic Multilingual Plane) Plane 0 (U+0000 to U+", "FFFF)
Unicode SMP (Supplementary Multilingual Plane) Plane 1 (U+10000 to U+1FFFF)
Unicode SIP (Supplementary Ideographic Plane) Plane 3 (U+20000 to U+2FFFF)
Unicode TIP (Tertiary Ideographic Plane) Plane 3 (U+30000 to U+3FFFF)

This is enough for everyday Chinese, but to make full use of my web site you will need Extenstion A and Extension B
CJK Ideographs Extension A: (U+3400 to U+4DBF)
This is the first extension of rare characters. You will need this to mske full use of my site.
CJK Ideographs Extension B: (U+20000 to U+2A6DF)
This is the second extension of rare characters. You will also need this.
