    When writing out Japanese numbers a different character is used for every unit
    that is a power of 10,000:
    man oku chou kei gai jo jou ...

    Apparently JIS didn't have a character for jo. It looks something like the
    pair: U+79BE U+4E88.

    Is there a single character for jo in Unicode? If so which is it? If not, what
    is the correct (or maybe traditional) way to represent this character in

    (I am trying to correct the table at )
