A lot of other religions managed to make it into Miscellaneous Symbols
(although if Solomon's Seal/Mogen David is there, I'm not seeing it). I'd
like to think that those crosses and ankhs and stuff are there for
compatibility or round-tripping or something, and that it isn't a case of
some religions being favored. And if Wiccans want to exchange books of
shadows in plain text, I'm sure we can make fine use of the PUA. So, no,
this isn't exactly a fuss. But I notice there is some space left after
