Are you sure? That looks more like the symbol used to separate

in Kurt Stone, and Heussenstam gives a handwriting example, that is
more vertically sloped and thinner, like two penlines.
If you look at the end of the standards document above, the
symbol is clearly named ceasura. I'll check the typesetting
books I have at home tonight.

Yes, but the typographical quality of the other symbols in the
document do not convince me. The symbol is much to black and heavy to
put in a staff.

I somewhat agree but the choice of fonts chosen for that document should be independent of the unicode value used to represent the caesura. I haven't presently got a better example to show. Maybe someone else does? I would hope that a better example would be generated in the fonts used by Lilypond.

Using "//" actually works thanks to Graham ( Thanks! ) but it would be better if it actually claimed some horizontal space for itself instead of just placing itself on top of whatever is there.
