    Unfortunately in case of any proposed characters, web-sites can be used as
    evidence only in a very limited way.

    If a character doesn't exist in Unicode, it can only be used as image or
    via special font, therefore, unless a document is found that uses an image
    or special font, the web can only show a fallback representation. So what
    we learn from this site, is -unsurprisingly- that the cent sign can be used
    as a fallback.
