While you're at it, I notice that page also uses the Roman numeral
characters, which page 499 of TUS 5.0 recommends against:
"For most purposes, it is preferable to compose the Roman numerals from
sequences of the appropriate Latin letters. However, the uppercase and
lowercase variants of the Roman numerals through 12, plus L, C, D, and
M, have been encoded for compatibility with East Asian standards."
Granted, that doesn't make for as effective of a Unicode demonstration....
