K - Netflix

Set in a world where history has taken a slightly different course from the one we're familiar with, K follows the story of a young boy whose life is caught in a psychic war between seven kings.

Ashinaka High School is known for its unique setting: the entire campus is built on an island. Yashiro Isana, aka Shiro, is having lunch with a cat on one of the school rooftops. After his lunch break, Shiro goes on an errand for his classmate Kukuri to prepare for their upcoming school festival, only to be chased by some intimidating-looking men.

K - Unicode subscripts and superscripts - Netflix

Unicode has subscripted and superscripted versions of a number of characters including a full set of Arabic numerals. These characters allow any polynomial, chemical and certain other equations to be represented in plain text without using any form of markup like HTML or TeX. The World Wide Web Consortium and the Unicode Consortium have made recommendations on the choice between using markup and using superscript and subscript characters: “When used in mathematical context (MathML) it is recommended to consistently use style markup for superscripts and subscripts...However, when super and sub-scripts are to reflect semantic distinctions, it is easier to work with these meanings encoded in text rather than markup, for example, in phonetic or phonemic transcription.”

K - Uses - Netflix

The intended use when these characters were added to Unicode was to allow chemical and algebra formulas and phonetics to be written without markup, and the proper appearance of these requires true superscripts and subscripts. Thus “H₂O” (using a subscript character) is supposed to be identical to “H2O” (with subscript markup), but it is not due to many fonts using the character as a denominator glyph. Most font renderings do not do a very good job of rendering a subscript correctly (it should not just be a shrunken version of the character, but have altered line weights and shape), however these code points were not intended to be used as subscripts (this should be obvious because, if that was the intention, a full alphabet at least would have been allocated). Most fonts that include these characters design the digits for mathematical numerator and denominator glyphs, which are smaller than normal characters but are aligned with the cap line and the baseline, respectively. When used with the solidus, these glyphs are useful for making arbitrary diagonal fractions (similar to the ½ glyph). This is incorrect according to the Unicode specification, but in existing software super/subscripts look horrible (example: 1/2), so font designers provided this alternative. Unicode intended to produce diagonal fractions through a different mechanism but it is very poorly supported. The fraction slash U+2044 is visually similar to the solidus, but when used with the ordinary digits (not the superscripts and subscripts) is intended to tell a layout system that a fraction such as ¾ should be rendered using automatic glyph substitution for the digits. Some browsers support this but not in all fonts, a selection of fonts is shown in the below table.
