Usage notes[edit]

This symbol is the pre-combined Unicode glyph for the Roman numeral eight, mainly intended for compatibility with large East-Asian character sets. It is used to represent the individual number where individual glyphs are not wanted. Otherwise, the Roman numeral eight is written as the sequence “viii” (that is, “v” followed by “i” and “i” then “i”).
