I think the accepted spelling is |w00t|, with zeroes. One of those odd little bits of l33t that have leaked into moderately-mainstream online culture. Unless of course, |woot| as an interjection previously existed in American English, and I never became aware of it until I saw it online. You'd think that with all the American TV, movies and music I'd absorbed over my life, I'd've picked up on it, but if not, then not. Paul
