They are made with keyboard symbols. This kind of thing is
typical of Fidonet users. We invented such things.

Thanks. I never thought of it that way. And you might have given me
a really far out idea. I will kick it around some and see if I can use
a regular keyboard to make such a thing.

My gosh, I did not realize that. Now, i will have to resist stealing them
keeping them as collector items. Thsi is sastonishing to say the least.

I love those things so much I have three (all Canon) and plan to buy one
more ( another Canon).

Take them out, no, but you gave me an idea. I will work with the library
that seems
to love me so much about something like this. The language lab could do
it but they
use student helpers who change all the time so arenot concistent
but thelibrary, hmmmm. Thanks a lot Val, I will use part of my spring
break to work
on how to implement such an idea.
