Years ago I was informed by our French subsidiary at work that we MUST
use U+004E U+00B0 to spell the abbreviation for "numéro," even after I
pointed out that we had access to U+00BA (and thousands of other
characters). That annoyed me no end, morally and typographically, but I
was in no position to claim to know French usage better than they did.
