[Bug 655350] [NEW] [4 new] Expansion: Musical notes (U+2669–U+266C)


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

In movie/TV subtitles, the characters U+266A (♪) or U+266B (♫) are often
used as shorthand to indicate that a character is singing. This notation
is equally common in subtitle files downloaded from the Internet as
well. In addition, a musical note glyph is available in both the ATSC
and DVB captioning standards for TV; depending on the device used, it
may be rendered either as U+266A or U+266B, though I believe the
official documentation for both uses the glyph form of U+266A.

Given that the Ubuntu Font Family will be the default font used to
render subtitles in many movie players under Ubuntu, I think these
characters ought to be added to it.
