It's encoded in Unicode as U+2116 NUMERO SIGN. There is also U+00AA
FEMININE ORDINAL INDICATOR and U+00BA MASCULINE ORDINAL INDICATOR. In a
recent discussion on the Unicode list, an Italian pointed out that his
language also uses e and i in that way, so that plural ordinals may agree
in case and gender--the general opinion was that he should propose them for
encoding.
