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

Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  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

  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.
