    Although it could look identical, I don't think that the m diacritic hasthe correct semantic. For me it's more like a normal "m" put above the equal sign. But Unicode does not allow such vertical layout for non-combining characters (except for the limited support of ruby notations *only below* normal text, encoded as with interlinear format controls, but mostly deprecated with XML-based notations like the HTML Ruby support for Asian texts, which also allows ruby notations *below and above* the main baseline)
