    I recently learned in <news:de.etc.sprache.deutsch> that there has been a
    tradition (in handwritten text more than in print) of writing "mm" as only
    one "m" with a macron above. I can't find any such character in Unicode,
    just U+1E3F and U+1E41.
    You could of course build something similar with "m"+U+0305 to resemble the
    look, but that won't become "mm" (just "m" or "m¯") after a conversion to
    e.g. ISO-8859-1.

    Should such a character be added to Unicode (or did I miss it)?
