x, y, and z are no math symbols, they are, seldomly, used in a math
context, in which some programmes tend to 'emphasise' them
artificially. + is some US-ASCII character too. (If you want to have
the same emphasised look of your copy you need some extra work to add.)
Ross thought of the Unicode blocks starting at U+2150 or at U+27C0,
i.e. Number Forms, Arrows, Mathematical Operators, Miscellaneous Math
Symbols-A, Supplemental Arrows-A, Supplemental Arrows-B, Miscellaneous
Math Symbols-B, Miscellaneous Math Operators, for example ∅, √, ∫, ≈,
≰, ...

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something
completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete
fools.
