Little things that matter in language design
Why to do you claim ℏ does not exist in HTML? Not all browsers support it, true, but most do. Or you can use ħ - it has slightly wider support...
Hmm... H-bar? What's the problem with it?

Thanks for the pointer! Due to the browser compatibility issues, I'll stick with
well-supported symbols. HTML is not the ideal medium for physics.

That's funny, given that HTML was invented by a physicist for the purpose of sharing physics
papers. Everyone else is a squatter.

The last browser that had any problem with that was Netscape 4. (No, lynx handles it just
fine.) Basic Latin characters used by major European languages (like Maltese) are supported by
everyone and have been for a long time.
