I've decided people should use unicode more to express their ideas--why do most of us stick to latin characters so much on livejournal? Also, the past 2 weekends have been packed full of yummi goodness, and I'm still processing!

It's snowing?

(I am suddenly realizing how bad these characters look on a black background rather than white. Maybe this is the impetus I need to change my background, after keeping it black for 7 years).

Of course there's the obvious reason - latin characters are directly there on the keyboard, while unicode ones require more work. Also, they don't render properly in all fonts. And apart from occasional accents and Greek letters, it's very rare that I want to type anything that would use more of unicode. (I often want to type mathematical stuff, but latex is much better than unicode for that.)

Those are some impressive collections of symbols! I wouldn't have expected the ones in that last line to be there!

Yes, if only we could use LaTeX in livejournal.

Do you happen to know what the last two mean? I think the two before them are transgender symbols, and the one before that is intersex. But I don't know what the significance of the horizontal and vertical versions of the male-with-a-slash symbol is.

I was going to ask you the same thing!
