The block Letterlike Symbols contains a few symbols for physical units:
U+2103 degree Celsius
U+2109 degree Fahrenheit
Section 12.2 of the Unicode standard, version 3.0, says:
In general, the usage of distinct codes for letterlike symbol
[...] is strongly discouraged.
Does this mean that U+03A9 is preferred for ohm
and that U+00C5 is preferred for ångström?
