It took me a long time to figure it out, too, but once I did it seemed very obvious. :-) Take a print Q. Start the circle part at the bottom, going clockwise, when you make a complete circle, then, continuing with one stroke, connect the bar. Now, then, take this character you've just drawn, and eliminate the left half of the circle. See here: -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'. Everyone's just a big dork or nerd, you just have to find people who are dorky the same way you are." - overheard ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTaylor42
