    Another nail in the coffin of "use U+00B7 : MIDDLE DOT for Catalan":
    Perhaps because it is exclusively used between "L"s (a "high" letter
    in both cases), Catalan middot is placed exactly as Michael has it:
    The top dot of a colon (careful Catalan typewriter users do/did just
    this, erasing or masking the bottom dot of a colon).
