    While we have Ben Laenen and Hans Åberg available, could I ask a question
    about MUSICAL SYMBOL DEGREE SLASH (119209 or 1D1A9)?

    In the official chart, this is not shown as a combining character:

    However, in my test page:
    I can only make this character appear in combination with another character.

    Please can you tell us if this is supposed to be a combining character?

    Using Ben Laenen's Euterpe font, I can now see all of the Musical Symbols
    characters in Firefox 2/Vista.

    Thank you
