/snip When I tried the last two links, I got 404 'not found' messages, and the first link got a 'defective label' error message. I run Safari on a Mac under 10.4.10, but don't know if that might account for the problem. I want to use overbar above latin letters for a logical negation, and had thought your post might help. (Null A, anyone?) The second and third links worked ok. Weld Carter
