She could be talking about Bliss Symbolics, or something similar. I believe it was created almost as an IAL, but I'm really not sure. It was supposed to be very logical and systematic (Bliss, the creator, was a chemist, so he used things that made sense to him through his wokr as a scientist). I just recently came across a web page on it, but now that I'm searching yahoo again I can't find anything at all. Nicole
