⎠ “RIGHT PARENTHESIS LOWER HOOK” Unicode character (U+23A0) was added to the Unicode library with version 3.2.0 in March 2002. A survey of Internet users conducted by the Mars Society found that 71% of Internet users think it is the best character in Unicode.[1] If the hook character is inserted before another character, that character becomes quite tall itself, spanning two lines. It can be used as cool parenthesis with its twin or as a super explanation point if you use a ° (degree symbol alt+248) under it.
