I mean, go to Google and search for "⊛".
It finds no hits.
I didn't even know the name for that character. I had to copy and
paste it into a terminal window that didn't understand the encoding,
so it gave me "\342\212\233". I then used Google and found a LaTeX
page listing octal Unicode escape characters for various LaTeX
definitions, those being "\circledast" which has "\oast" as an alias.
Those two terms I can search for. Not some sort of unknown-to-me
