Regarding Unicode for new Symbol

But there's already a symbol encoded for this common word: it is part of
the ASCII subset (&) and is already encoded as a symbol (even if initially
it was designed as a cursive simplification of a ligature for the Latin
letters "et" (and used also within words containing these letters, in
addition to the MAtin word "et" itself).
Some fonts still make the ligature more evident, but as a symbol it allows
more variation of its shape (it is also used in a trademark symbol for the
Orange telecommunication group, with a specific design, but for such usage
as a logo, the encoded character is not suitable: logos are transported as
images to specify also this shape and color design, not encoded in the
character itself).
