Maltese Characters

Any Maltese words in the English version of this website do not contain Maltese characters to avoid causing you any problems of incompatibility. In the Maltese pages, Maltese characters are represented using the Unicode system. Unicode is a new international font standard which is based on existing fonts but with a considerably extended character set (including Maltese fonts). New and recent computers are likely to have Unicode fonts installed as standard and can therefore automatically portray Maltese characters in the correct manner. If your computer is not upgraded to this standard, you can download Maltese language support software from the Malta Information Technology Agency (MITA) website which also includes some Unicode fonts.
