Question made by me (Is this too easy?)
I'm not familiar with the process by which y'all are rendering these (some type of MatchstickML based on TeX and MathJax?) But as there is no specified alignment and you assume they may only be vertical or horizontal, if you move the
\U+002D matchstick to the initial
9, one could consider that that a crossed or dotted zero, (as all zeros should be), leaving something akin to
(Something akin to padding a simple 8-bit decimal in UTF-16 with a BOM, for ridiculous encodings like that.
P.S. I'm honounered to be Lizzy, but where's Colonel Brandon?
