I found the ֿ¹ on the tips and tricks page (I believe thornahawk is the person who added it), and decided to try it out on the cosֿ¹( command page. Do you guys like the look of it better than the current ‾¹?

I can't tell the difference. If it looks better to you, then stick with it.
I like it too, but there are a lot of pages to change…
Is it intentional that the new symbol looks like the letter O with a bar on top?
Right now, the title of the inverse commands strikes me as unintuitive. To be sure, we only use it in links, but it could still be improved. My personal favorite alternative is "arccos" (the other commands would be "arcsin", "arctan", "arsinh", "arcosh", and "artanh") respectively. Other alternatives would be "acos" (as in C or MATLAB), "inverse-cos", "cos-inverse", or just not fixing what ain't broke.
Since this would change the links pretty much all over the place, I want to know other people's opinion on this.
I was actually thinking the same thing, and went ahead and changed the respective pages to arcwhatever.
I haven't done very much with hyperbolic functions, so I didn't know that. I could change the page names to reflect that, but I suppose you could do that as well, if you want to. This has been a very productive night, I'm learning all sorts of new things … Iverson is the guy who came up with the 1/0 convention, now hyperbolic functions are prefaced with ar :D
