The flattened U that Donna recommends sounds like the right
thing. It's squared off, like a staple with the points up,
right? It's in use fairly widely, it can't be confused with
a letter, and it leaves lots of space empty so that the eye
can still easily separate the adjoining words from one another.

The slashed b will look a little ugly if you make it by
overprinting a regular b and a regular slash. In the proper
version of the symbol IIRC the slash is a bit small and
cuts through the letter's ascender.
