Because it is historically the same character, and because it looks exactly
the same except in some font styles.

And personally, I would like to see a wide range of Serbian printed
examples from the beginning of the era of Serbian printing to the present,
showing that the m-shaped TE and the n-shaped PE are not used, not
recognized, and not desirable in Serbian printing. So far we haven't seen
anything of the kind. I haven't yet checked my own repertoire of sources,
but I will do so as well.
