Subfield mark in MARC records

     Those of you who work with bibliographic records, especially MARC
     records, will know that in the good old ASCII days the code point used
     for subfield mark was Hex 1F, and when a visual representation was
     needed, the dollar character, $, was used, (at least in the UK).
     I am now endeavouring to ascertain if there is an emerging de facto
     standard among UNICODE users on what code point and glyph to use for
     the subfield mark.
     Any news of such a developing standard would be most welcome.
