Thanks for the comments about my apostrophe comments. I just got back from
a week-long vacation, which explains the lack of immediate response from me. :)

I agree -- the latter looks great. Thanks much.

It's my name for everything online. I myself am from the US, but my name
came from randoming hitting the keyboard until I typed something vaguely
pronouncible -- rejected names included the likes of Aljbngf, Ihubrgf, and
Hbgfk. :P My last name, Angosii, came from a random name generator I
scripted in zMud.

I really like this idea. Thanks!

Funny thing is that in the conscript the actual symbol does look a bit like
a curvy <, so that it already looks a bit like no<one. For Type One, I'm
going with the double apostrophe ". Type Two will remain the single
apostrophe ' and Type Three will be three dots ...
Thanks for the ideas!
