This is a null formatting template. It has no effect but to indicate that a character lies in the Private Use Area (PUA) of Unicode, and to place the article using the character in Category:Articles with wanted PUA characters.

Useful PUA characters

PUA characters are not normally appropriate for Wikipedia. However, if the text is formatted for a font which supports it, there are cases where a PUA character may be desired, such as when the font or the character itself is being discussed. (See Tengwar, for example.) In such cases an image of the character should also be displayed, or an article with an image linked to.

Formatting PUA characters

Browsers will generally not know how to handle PUA characters. It is therefore necessary to force the browser to display the character in an appropriate font. An existing template such as {{IPA}} may be sufficient. If not, fonts X, Y, Z can be individually specified with html markup such as:

<span style="font-family:X, Y, Z">[PUA]</span>
Substituting PUA characters

As of 2014[needs update], AutoWikiBrowser (AWB) is not capable of editing pages which contain unsubstituted PUA characters. If they are to be kept, it is therefore best to replace them with their four-digit Unicode numbers, using the code &#...; (decimal) or &#x...; (hexadecimal). In the Wikipedia edit window, PUA characters will display as a box containing the hexadecimal Unicode number, which can be manually converted to &#x...; format.

Both formatting and substitution are required if PUA characters are to be useful, and this PUA template is required as well if we are to keep track of them.
