This is a test review complete with photos. Let's see how it works

Unicode is an international not-for-profit organisation that started in the 1980s as an effort to "unify" the "codes" for textual characters used in the computing industry. By "code", I just mean a number. Computers only understand numbers, and so you need to tell the computer which number refers to the letter "a", which one refers to the letter "b", etc. so that you can visualise them on a computer screen (otherwise you'd be reading ones and zeros right now). So the problem in the 1980s was that there wasn't a universally agreed-upon set of "rules" for which number refers to which character, and so every programmer was writing their own set of rules, and whenever their programs interacted with programs written by other programmers, they'd need to make specially designed "translators" to allow the programs to communicate. Unicode sought to solve this by creating an international standard - meaning that everyone would be using the same number-to-letter "rule book".

Okay, so how does this relate to generating small text? Well, as it turned out, there were a bunch of people that weren't too interested in Unicode. They had specific character requirements that Unicode hadn't accounted for in their initial specification. So in order to get programmers and organisations to adopt the Unicode standard faster, Unicode began incorperating a bunch of weird symbols and rules that those people needed for their applications, and thus Unicode's full character set exploded to include include tens of thousands of different symbols, for many languages, and many arcane legacy systems.

Along the way, it picked up a set of symbols which can be used to emulate "small caps" (an alphabet of small capital letters), and a somewhat incomplete set of subscript and superscript characters. So the small text letters that you see in the output box above are just a few of the 130,000+ symbols that are specified in the Unicode standard - just like the symbols that you're reading right now.

I have had the pleasure of working with a la Carte Kitchen for over 3 years and simply put, they never disappoint!

The whole team and our lead contact Janice Davies have been beyond amazing to work with. I can count on them to deliver for all of our events including something small like our internal lunch, to our large receptions with over 700 guests. Their team is professional and I could not ask for a better selection in their menu and prices. Every time we've had them featured, we always get great compliments on the day of the event!

We look forward to working with a la Carte Kitchen on all our special occasions!

Our wedding at the Gardiner Museum was absolutely perfect thanks to Ossian and a la Carte Kitchen.

Similar to the review below, my husband and I were planning our wedding from overseas. Planning such an important day from abroad could have been a nightmare but Ossian was so attentive and so easy to work with, everything came together wonderfully. We were planning our wedding day for almost 18 months and from start to finish Ossian was always there to answer our questions, provide suggestions, listen to all of our ideas, and accommodate our requests. Nothing ever seemed too big or small. Even the day before we had a crisis with the table linens but Ossian had a solution and totally saved the day!

We have received nothing but positive feedback and compliments about the reception. Not just about the decor, but the food too! Many of our guests said it was the best they had tasted at a wedding. We were so pleased with the look and flavours. It was so special knowing that our entire menu was created just for us and not just some stock standard meal that you could pick off a list.

If we could go back we wouldn't change a thing. We would definitely recommend a la Carte Kitchen to anyone. If you book them and have the privilege of working with Ossian you can rest assured you are in very good hands!

We had the most perfect wedding day at the Gardiner Museum and such a smooth process in organising it and a seamless delivery thanks to Ossian and his team at a la Carte Kitchen.

We were planning our wedding in Toronto from abroad so knowing that our wedding was in such competent and dedicated hands was such a relief. No question came too soon or was too small and everything seemed possible and was always answered with utmost courteousness and genuine care.

We had so many compliments about our day, the way the venue looked and the quality of the food, and that wouldn't have happened without such a conscientious and efficient team paying such careful attention to all of our details and instructions - everything looked and happened exactly as we imagined it.

Thank you to Ossian and the team. We could not have pulled off such a successful and joyful day without you. I would recommend a la Carte Kithen to anyone.
