    From TUS: " These symbols are typically used for text decorations, but they
    may also be treated as normal text characters in applications such as
    typesetting chess books, card game manuals, and horoscopes. "

    Never seen a source file with the .C# extension (nor C♯). Seen a lot of them
    with .cs. The compiler itself is named csc.
    And C♯ does not seems to be an allowed identifier (neither is col·lectiu, so
    for me this language is bad ;-) And please Ken you are specifically
    prohibited to comment on this one: you know we cannot agree on this one

    En français, on devrait dire « do dièse ». Ce qui enlève beaucoup de sel.
