TECH: more help?

From:Roger Mills <rfmilly@...>

In the course of doing my #$%^^&*( Gwr sound change rules (which are slowly
approaching finality...), it would be nice to be able to use professional
looking big square and curly brackets.

I'm using Thryomanes for text; in my list of available fonts there's
something called WP Math Extended A that has the right symbols (or at least
usable ones :-( ), but I can't get them to integrate into the rules in the
right places.

Question to anyone who's done math.formulae or linguistic rules using these
things-- is it possible? how is it done?

(At the moment, for my own uses, Plan B is to put everything on 1 line so
that a feature matrix looks like [+Cons +front -voi] etc. and rules look

X --> Y /__{A, B} which isn't very clear; perhaps {1.A 2B} ??

or I could use two or more lines:  X --> Y /__ {A }
                                               {B }

( {B} should be directly under [A} -- a little closer to how it OUGHT to

Thanks for any suggestions.
