The Medieval Unicode Font Initiative (MUFI), spearheaded by medieval Nordic scholars, is intended to create an agreed-upon allocation of the Private Use Area (PUA) of Unicode so that designers can independently create different fonts whose use of the Private Use Area will be interchangeable. As of 2015 more than 1500 characters have been encoded. Several fonts have been designed to be MUFI-compliant.
The initiative has the ambition of providing the basis for new Unicode proposals, but the great majority of characters assigned to the PUA are beyond the scope of the mandate of Unicode.
