    I agree that we write "No." rather than "#". But we use a simple string
    "N", "o", ".", rather than U+2116. U+2116 is commonly used as a single
    character in Cyrillic script (which has no "N" shape). Indeed it is
    included in Russian typewriters and computer keyboards as a single-width
    character, accessed by the "1" key (to get "1", type shift-1).
