    More seriously, these restroom symbols are not designed to be printed in
    papers, but displayed in public areas. They actually have nearly no use on

    It would be much more interesting to encode first the symbols commonly found
    in travel guides, lists of hotels or campings, onboard services (train and
    plaine guides), metro stations near addresses (also common in yellow pages,
    and often marked with a circled M), bus and taxis stations...

    See also the symbols used to display natural resources or major industries
    in countries or regions (consult encyclopedic atlases).
