    It does suggest that the DEGREE sign is not "really" the right
    character for the second part of the Numero sign. In my view either
    U+1D52 or Masculine Ordinal would be preferable (if the latter has no
    underbar, since U+02E2 has no underbar).

    I can hear Ken groan at this misuse of characters.
