If you need other symbols to be represented, it needs to goto their
respective places in ISO-8859-1 (ASCII). By putting other symbol in the
place where the copyright sign is known to the whole world as code point
169 in ASCII, web pages (or rather most English web pages) with copyright
sign will be replaced by the symbol you substituted in its place.

Just wondering what other symbols do you have in mind?
We can discuss them on the lists.
