    U+2013 was a bad idea, as some (many, most?) fonts concatenate the
    U+2013 glyphs into a horizontal line. So, I think, U+002d HYPHEN-MINUS
    is the better alternative.

    Most Morse code instructions I've seen in the Internet, or on paper,
    use U+002E FULL STOP for the Morse dot; but I think, we should rather
    recommend U+00B7 MIDDLE DOT.
