    I suppose my shell is capable of displaying unicode (utf8).

    When I run this

    perl -CO -E 'say "\x{263a}"'

    I get this output

      It seems unlikely to me you're using a shell terminal that has the capability to perform the sophisticated typography needed to render a lowercase m with a diaeresis above it and a cedilla below it. It's a matter of computer typography, not of Unicode code point coverage.

        It's the terminal, not the shell that matters. rxvt unicode works just fine with that invented character.
