    Then maybe that's what the logo should say: 'Unicode encoded'. That states
    simply and accurately what the logo is intended to communicate.

    Attached is mockup with globe+checkmark image hopefuly conveying something
    along the lines of 'the world speaks Unicode' or 'this website works

    Note, I'm a type designer, not a logo designer, so I don't know whether
    this mockup might look too much like something else out there: it's hardly
    an innovative idea.

    If you browse in the shelves that, in American bookstores,
    are labeled New Age, you can find there even Saint Augustine,
    who, as far as I know, was not a fascist. But combining Saint
    Augustine and Stonehenge -- that is a symptom of Ur-Fascism.
