Won sign

Won sign

The won sign (₩) is a symbol that is commonly used for the South Korean won, but also used for the following currencies:
* North Korean won
* Woolong, a fictional currency in "Cowboy Bebop"
* Kinzcash, a fictional form of currency in the online game "Webkinz"

The directory separator character also appears on Korean versions of Microsoft Windows as ₩, because ₩ occupies the same position (0x5C) on code page 949 that backslash occupies in ASCII. [ [http://blogs.msdn.com/michkap/archive/2005/09/17/469941.aspx When is a backslash not a backslash?] ]

The Unicode code point for ₩ is 8361 in decimal (20A9 in hex); it can be represented in HTML as ₩.
