There is no single character in The UCS for that.  Therefore it
is encoded as either the sequence of:

,----[ composition of "C⃞" ]
| U+0043 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER C      [ C]
| U+20DE COMBINING ENCLOSING SQUARE  [ ⃞]
`----

,----[ composition of "ᴄ⃞" ]
| U+1D04 LATIN LETTER SMALL CAPITAL C  [ ᴄ]
| U+20DE COMBINING ENCLOSING SQUARE    [ ⃞]
`----

Or, in a Math context you might choose one of the C characters from
the MATHEMATICAL block starting at U+1D400, combined with U+20DE.

(As a side note, in this message-mode buffer the first composition is
not combining, nor are the NBSP+Combining sequences.  But the small cap
sequence is doing so.  (CVS HEAD, tip as of 2008/07/07T11:30:00Z or so.)
