How to type the small comma-like emphasize

I am reading the book 時をかける少女, and I understand the small commas in these pics are used as a tool for emphasizing, but does anyone know who to type them on a computer? I can’t seem to find the way to do it

Add furigana with ruby tags?

The character you are looking for is the sesame dot.

If it’s HTML that you’re writing then current browsers support it well enough for the following:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <body>
    <style>
      p {
        writing-mode: tb-rl;
        font-family: meiryo;
      }
      em {
        text-emphasis: filled sesame;
        -webkit-text-emphasis: filled sesame;
      }
    </style>
    <p>
      せい!せい!<em>せい</em>!
    </p>
  </body>
</html>

will produce something like:

Nice, that’s so cool!

And what does “open sesame” look like? :stuck_out_tongue:
