You know what's odd? There's no "cent" key on a standard US keyboard. What's up with that? There's scope for what-if-ism here, too. What if early programming language designers had had ready access to the "cent" glyph, for instance? To what use might one put it? Likewise linguists designing ASCII-IPA schemes, and I suspect the list goes on. Paul
