at the end of my score, I'd like to have a "Da Capo al Segno", with a nice symbol for segno. I'm almost there:

DC = {
  \once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'break-visibility = #end-of-line-visible
  \once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'self-alignment-X = #RIGHT
  \mark \markup { "D.C. al " \tiny \musicglyph #"scripts.segno" }
}

But the segno is not aligned with the text:

Not aligned segno

How can I make that better?

Can't segno satisfaction...

% LilyPond engraving system - http://www.lilypond.org/
\version "2.18.0"

% There exists U+1D10B though lilypond 2.18.2 renders \char ##x1D10B as a
% boxed question mark for me. so...

DC = {
  \once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'break-visibility = #end-of-line-visible
  \once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'self-alignment-X = #RIGHT

  % option 1, move the segno up...
  %\mark \markup { "D.C. al " \raise #1.1 { \tiny \musicglyph #"scripts.segno" } }

  % ... or option 2, move the text down
  \mark \markup {
    \general-align #Y #-1.0 { "D.C. al " \tiny \musicglyph #"scripts.segno" } }
}

bbbb = {
 \tempo 4=96
 bes1~bes~bes~bes~bes~bes~bes\ppp\DC
 \bar "|."
}

\score {
  \new Staff << \bbbb >>
  \layout { }
}

Neither of these seem very satisfying, as they do not get to the root as to why that segno is seemingly disconnected from the surrounding markup. :/
