description:

recreation of the medium/high resolution character set used in the atari ST TOS (1985), and later reused in the atari TT and atari falcon.

most special characters have been included and mapped to their respective unicode equivalents. this recreation also includes the special characters that form the atari logo (mapped to the dingbat code points U+2768 and U+2769) and the pixelated face of j.r. "bob" dobbs (box drawing code points U+250C, U+2510, U+2514 and U+2518).

only the characters present in the original set have been included.
