    The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae, based at the University of
    California/Irvine, has been working on the issue of additional
    characters needed for classics, particularly Greek. TLG made a proposal
    for metrical symbols which was approved by the UTC last November; see and also (look for "metrical
    symbols"). The metrical long is represented as U+2013 while a new
    metrical breve has been established at U+2692.
