Roman numerals from 0 to 125

Unicode contains special characters for certain Roman numeral characters. These characters should not be used. Roman numerals should be indicated using standard capitalized Latin characters, as shown below.

CSG uses the simplified Roman numerals system. While no work is ever actually expected to have a sufficient number of works to need a 499th movement, should a work with 499 or more movements ever actually be written, movement 499 would be indicated as ID, not CDXCIX, LDVLIV, XDIX, or VDIV.

  1. While the original Roman numeral system did not have a zero, in those rare cases where a Roman zero is needed, just such a numeral indicaton was added to the simplified roman numeral system in 725 AD.
