    Some days ago a friend was designing a for an advertisement campaign for
    a web saloon and I saw her toying around with U+0064.

    «That's good for symbolizing e-mail», I said, «but that joint supports
    no POP3/SMTP access, only webbrowsing. «You should go for a "www"
    instead...» «Well, I want it as one character only. Any ideas, dummy?»

    This dummy then produced U+02AC to the startled friend, and hurried in
    search a sadly inexisting COMBINING LATIN SMALL LETTER W. Settled for
    U+0651, just for the sake of it...
