I think, playing card are not characters (for use in plain text). Usually,
one says (in german) Herz-A, Herz-K, Herz-10 or one uses the suit
characters already in UNicode <heartsuit>10 etc.
Only the french suits are currently in, one can consider encoding the
suits of Mahjongg, german, swiss, italian and spanish card, too. And
the special sign printed on Joker cards (a five pointed star in a
circle) But not more.
For information on card games and cards, you may want to consult
or Detlef Hoffamnn: Kultur- und Kunstgeschichte der Spielkarte,
Jonas-Verlag, Marburg, 1995.
