002E..002EBasLatFULL STOPUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
.
The full stop is often used as a mark of abbreviation, typically in suspended (truncated) words. If an encoder wants to make a distinction between the full stop as a punctuation mark and as an abbreviation mark, we recommend that the same character, 002E FULL STOP, should be used in both cases, but that the abbreviation mark is specified by markup, e.g. by the element.
003B;&#59;003BBasLatSEMICOLONUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
;
In Medieval script, a sign looking like the semicolon was commonly used as an abbreviation for ‘eð’ or ‘ed’, cf. LATIN ABBREVIATION SIGN SEMICOLON at F1AC on p. 133 below. If an encoder wants to use 003B SEMICOLON for the abbreviation sign, we recommend that this usage should be specified by markup, e.g. by the element.
0026&&0026BasLatAMPERSANDUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
&
In Medieval primary sources, the ampersand was used as an abbreviation for the conjunction ‘and’ (Latin ‘et’, Medieval Nordic ‘ok’, etc.), in which case it can be specified by markup, e.g. by the element. In SGML/XML encoded documents, the ampersand is the opening character of an entity name, as exemplified throughout this recommendation. To avoid confusion, the ampersand as such can be encoded with the entity ‘&’. In Medieval primary sources, the ampersand was used as an abbreviation for the conjunction ‘and’ (Latin ‘et’, Medieval Nordic ‘ok’, etc.), in which case it can be specified by markup, e.g. by the element.

A74A&OBIIT;ꝊA74ALatExtDLATIN CAPITAL LETTER O WITH LONG STROKE OVERLAYUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
As pointed out above, the character 03B8 GREEK SMALL LETTER THETA in Greek and Coptic is sometimes used for rendering this abbreviation, but we recommend having a separate obiit character.
204A&et;⁊204A
Junicode: F143
GenPunctLATIN ABBREVIATION SIGN SMALL ETUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
The Unicode descriptive name for this character is TIRONIAN SIGN ET. It was frequently used in Medieval sources, and is still used in Modern Irish. As of Junicode version 0.6.12, this character is no longer located at F143, but has been moved to 204A.

MUFI: 3.0
ʼ
LATIN ABBREVIATION SIGN APOSTROPHE — The ordinary apostrophe, 0027 APOSTROPHE, has been listed in section 5 below. We recommend that the character 02BC should be used to encode ab- breviations, and that 0027 should be used in all other contexts.

Another form of the ‘con’ abbreviation character looks like a reversed ‘C’. This character, which also was used as a Roman numeral and as a Claudian let- ter, antisigma, has been listed under the character ‘C’ above.

F159&de;F159PUA-4LATIN ABBREVIATION SIGN SMALL DEUni.:
MUFI: 3.0
Used for Denar, Denier and Pfennig, and should therefore be distinguished from the italic form of 00F0 LATIN SMALL LETTER ETH. It should, however, be unified with F159 LATIN ABBREVIATION SIGN SMALL DE (p. 106 above). The previous code point, F2E5, should be retained and not used for any new character. Also defined as LATIN SMALL LETTER D ROTUNDA WITH BAR (&drotbar;).

This character can also be used for the ‘soldi’ sign (see p. 157 below)

MUFI: 3.0
A76A&ETfin;ꝪA76ALatExtDLATIN CAPITAL LETTER ETUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
The two characters above are used as suspension marks in a number of contexts, e.g. for ‘et’ in ‘videlicet’, for ‘us’ in ‘quibus’, ‘omnibus’, for ‘ue’ in ‘ne- que’, ‘cumque’, for ‘m’ in ‘nam’, ‘omnem’, for ‘est‘ in ‘prodest’, ‘interest’, etc. In the paleographical literature, it is usually described as “a sign looking like the number 3”. It is difficult to find a wholly suitable name; the name proposed here takes the abbreviation of ‘et’ in ‘videlicet’ to be prototypical.
F1AC&sem;F1ACPUA-4LATIN ABBREVIATION SIGN SEMICOLONUni.:
MUFI: 3.0
The character 003B SEMICOLON can be used for the frequent abbreviation sign of similar shape. However, some encoders might want to have a separate character, in which case we recommend using F1AC LATIN ABBREVIATION SIGN SEMICOLON. Neither character should be unified with F1EA PUNCTUS VERSUS, which is a punctuation mark (see p. 145 below).
16D8&mMedrun;ᛘ16D8RunRUNIC MEDIEVAL LETTER MUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
RUNIC MEDIEVAL LETTER M — In Medieval Nordic manuscripts written in the Latin alphabet, the m rune serves as an abbreviation for ‘maðr’ (man). The Unicode descriptive name for this character is RUNIC LETTER LONG-BRANCH-MADR M, but here a simpler name has been given, RUNIC MEDIEVAL LETTER M.
