      Yes, ditto.

      The ditto mark is a typographic symbol indicating that the word(s) or figure(s) below which it is placed are to be repeated. It has Unicode code-point U+3003. Where this character is not available, closing double quotation marks (") or straight double quotation marks (") are often used.
