Im playing with a bat file triying to put a BELL sound when the file
execution is complete and I have a file that has the character so I just
have to copy it into the bat file. But I was curious about how could I
get the char directly from emacs so I did a C-u C-x = and emacs showed
me this:

             position: 7 of 8 (75%), column: 6
            character: C-g (displayed as C-g) (codepoint 7, #o7, #x7)
    preferred charset: ascii (ASCII (ISO646 IRV))
code point in charset: 0x07
               script: latin
               syntax: .     which means: punctuation
             to input: type "C-x 8 RET 7" or "C-x 8 RET BELL"
          buffer code: #x07
            file code: #x07 (encoded by coding system iso-latin-1-dos)
              display: no font available
       hardcoded face: escape-glyph

Character code properties: customize what to show
  old-name: BELL
  general-category: Cc (Other, Control)

There are text properties here:
  fontified            t

I thought "ooh! this is cool I can write this character using its name,
BELL" so I created a new bat file "alarm2.bat" with just one line and
tryed to write the character on that file using C-x 8 RET BELL as the
previous help screen told me, but got a different character. When I do a
C-u C-x = over that character I got this:

             position: 9 of 10 (80%), column: 9
            character: 🔔 (displayed as 🔔) (codepoint 128276,
#o372424, #x1f514)
    preferred charset: unicode (Unicode (ISO10646))
code point in charset: 0x1F514
               script: symbol
               syntax: w     which means: word
             category: .:Base
             to input: type "C-x 8 RET 1f514" or "C-x 8 RET BELL"
          buffer code: #xF0 #x9F #x94 #x94
            file code: not encodable by coding system iso-latin-1-dos
              display: no font available

Character code properties: customize what to show
  name: BELL
  general-category: So (Symbol, Other)
  decomposition: (128276) ('🔔')

There are text properties here:
  fontified            t

Its a different character but it also states that I could write it using
C-x 8 RET BELL. To me that is an inconsistency, because one of the
commands that the help screen showed me was C-x 8 RET BELL and that
clearly doesn't work.

I'll take that as confirmation that the bug can be closed, and have done so.
