Was it really common for people to keep their modem under their phone and that’s why it merits a unicode character representing such? I remember external modems, but I don’t remember them being under phones. If there’s a unicode character for that, why not one for a phone receiver in an acoustic coupler? 😀
People using Linux who can’t see the Kharosthi script characters may want to look in repos for a package with damase on the name. In Fedora repos it’s umph-2b-damase-fonts.
