What would you say are the correct characters to encode the symbols
for "long" and "short" (or actually stressed and otherwise) metrical
syllables in classic poetry analysis?
Though these obviously share a common ancestry with U+0304 : COMBINING
MACRON and U+0306 : COMBINING BREVE (and/or with their spacing
counterparts), respectively, their usual typrographic representation in
line is as a wide glyph set in the middle of the slug line.
The big breve can be encoded as U+2323 : SMILE (who ever thought up
theses names, anyway?), and there seems to no other choice, but I
hesitate about the long syllable marker: Should it be U+2013 : EN DASH
or rather U+2014 : EM DASH?...
Obviously it would be highly advisable to use for this symbol always the
