Back in 1993 I developed the habit of putting boxes by my task list items and then filling the boxes in in various ways as I worked on and eventually completed the tasks. Today, I found the following characters in the Unicode 3.0 standard. These could be used in a software system that implements my task list management technique.
NOTE: These characters may not display correctly for you if your browser is not fully Unicode capable.
