In mediaeval musical notation there is a distinction between "b rotunda" [♭, or rather b] & "b quadrata" [♮].
I suggest that we need two forms of a true "b quadrata" — minuscule, & MAJUSCULE (yes, a capital form of the "square b".



Note the "♮ mi" above "Γ ut".

This is quite a mess, & the pictures don't show.
My apologies!

I think that ♮ is actually not the b-quadrata but the natural sign.
But it is a worthwhile question wether a b-quadrata should get encoded. As a lowercase first, I suppose.

Yes, it's the natural sign.
Yet, it's all we've got;
& so need the real thing.
