|I was looking for the electrical "standby" symbol - AKA IEC5009 / IEEE1621. You know, the circle with the line through it. The one that's on every single bloody piece of electronic equipment produced since the mid-1970s.|
It's not in the Unicode standard.
I can, if I want, have a snowman ☃ or a reversed rotated floral bullet ☙.
What other useful and/or important symbols are missing from Unicode?
