Hmmm. The only thing that come to mind is the <FONT FACE> tag:
<FONT FACE = Symbol SIZE = 2>&xxxx;<FONT FACE = Verdana, Helvetica, Arial
SIZE = 2>-Gundam
where &xxxx; is the character code (decimal 34, hex 22) corresponding to
the turn-A symbol. In effect, you switch to the Symbol character set,
select the specific character from that set, then switch back to the
conventional character sets, allowing for the different operating systems.
