Is there any info about this character (U+0387)? Is said that is used in Greek as an equivalent to the semi-colon in Latin languages (while in Greek, semi-colon works as a question mark). Unicode poorly make it a compatibility decomposition to the Middle dot character (U+00B7), even though is frequently said that the character is "sightly above" the x-height, yet I haven't found enough reference. For a while I thought that a ongoing accepted Unicode proposal for the character 'raised dot' was a replacement, but it is actually a dot that resides between the x-height and the baseline, for use in Greek and Coptic too.
- Is the symbol (Ano teleia) actually used?
- Are there any kind of guide of how to design it?
- Is there any solution to the "compatibility decomposition" issue for the future?
