I draw an 8 by starting in the middle, completing the upper loop, then the lower loop, and ending up in the middle again. For a 9, I draw the loop first (starting from the top right corner) and then the spike. For a capital A, I draw all three strokes seperately: first from the top to the bottom left corner, then from the top to the bottom right corner, and finally left to right across the middle. For a capital B, it's the same as if I was writing the number 13. For a capital N, I do the left downward stroke first, then retrace to the top, then complete the letter. And so on. Adrian. --
