⎠ “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. 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.
