    By the same token, the puncta extraordinaria may or may not be accents,
    but their status as characters is not in doubt; likewise Pluto's

    In any event, several of the asteroids have symbols as well: at least
    Ceres, Pallas, Vesta, and Juno, the Big Four of the main belt.
    See Koch's _Book of Signs_.
