    These could be 231C and 231D, or 02F9 and 02FA (especially if they
    actually do indicate tone), or possibly 2308 and 2309. I don't suppose
    20E7 is suitable. One of them looks a bit like one of the proposed New
    Testament punctuation characters, pipelined for 2E00..2E0C, which is
    perhaps appropriate for a book "with examples like "a student of
    divinity at Oxford University.""
