Nice to see you on the List again ;-)
Yes...a lot of people don't realize that the perfect symbols we type, can
also be written quickly by hand. It is just like block printing in English
- when we write English by hand, our writing doesn't look as perfect as the
typed letters do. But just because the symbols look perfect when typed,
does not mean they cannot be written by hand too...it is just a technique
that comes with experience.
Thanks for your comments!
