Use of Slovak Diacritics

Wherever possible, this website will allow the use of Slovak diacritic markings (long vowels, hachek consonants, etc.) encoded in a format called utf-8. If you are unsure whether your browser is set up to handle Slovak alphabet characters, compare the following two versions of a diacritic-heavy sentence devised by Vladimír Benko:



Päťtýždňové vĺčatá nervózne štekajú
na môjho ďatľa v tŕní.

The sentence in the white box should appear “normal” no matter what kind of browser settings you are using. You should see correct Slovak diacritic markings on the appropriate letters. If your web browser is set up to handle Slovak alphabet characters, the letters in the black box will exactly match the ones in the box. If your browser is not set up to handle Slovak alphabet characters, the letters in the sentence under the box will not match the ones in the box and instead you will probably see symbols and characters that are not part of either the English or the Slovak alphabet. You can find out more about diacritics at www.unicode.org.
