    I wonder if anyone can help me track down two punctuation symbols in
    Unicode? - I've been through the charts and, try as I might, I can't
    seem to locate them....

    They are used in the transliteration of cuneiform for partially
    preserved signs and look like the very top portions, respectively, of
    the parentheses marks : [ and ]

    I'm hoping that they are supported in Unicode, as they are used
    frequently in Assyriological literature.

    All help greatly appreciated,
