Thanks, I will provide you with the remaining symbols then later :-)

There is a good (and simple) way to do that.
First, there will be two symbols for the opening and the closing bracket
of the verse number.
Second, the digits from 0 to 9 should be written with two complementary
symbols below and above them that when used beside the brackets will form
the verse number symbol and when used beside another digit will extend to
include the two digits and form one symbol
An example:
-   -   - 
0  1   2  ...etc              ------>digits
-   -   -

{                      ------> opening bracket

}                      ------> closing bracket

|  -- |
{ 31 }                      ------> full verse number symbol
|  -- |

I think Nadim is going to do so as I noticed that in the latest core meeting
