I'm with Chris on this.
Unless you are working in Unicode, the choice of the appearance
of any 'special' character you pick will depend on the font and/or the
codepage. So this *might* look okay to you and still look like garbage
to someone else. Like your boss. Which would be bad.
I think you need to choose another way of doing this, so you will
not be subject to the whimsy of the machine it is displayed on.
