middle dot, interpunct
The middle dot (a.k.a. interpunct) is often used as a list separator, or in e.g. dictionaries for separating parts of a word (though in Unicode that is technically a different, but most often identical looking character: ‧).

decodeunicode the movie. Since 2005 we showed a prototype of this film at the end of our talks. Some people suggested to put it online, so we made a new, complete one: it shows each and every Unicode 6.0 character. 109.242 characters in total.

A Spectre is Haunting Unicode
In 1978 Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry established the encoding that would later be known as JIS X 0208, which still serves as an important reference for all Japanese encodings. However, after the JIS standard was released people noticed something strange - several of the added characters had no obvious sources, and nobody could tell what they meant or how they should be pronounced. Nobody was sure where they came from. These are what came to be known as the ghost characters (幽霊文字).
