APOLOGIES

David Auerbach,  I was trying to look again at the symbols you put up, and somehow I removed them.  My apologies.  How did you do that?

I produced those symbols two different ways. Way 1 (the less helpful to you way, I think): On my computer I have access to typefaces that include huge swaths of the unicode character set. (Unicode is a standard encoding of much of the world's characters, the successor to the pathetic euro-centric ascii and ansi.) So I just "typed" them. (I've assigned some to special shortcut keys, but they are all available through menus. I'm in Mac world, but I'm sure there's analogous in Windows world. Way 2: (probably better for your blogging use) I noted that html codes are permitted in comments. For special characters these have the following general format: an ampersand followed by a mnemonic for the symbol followed by a semi-colon. For sigma I typed σ Note that it doesn't covert the code to the symbol until after you save the entry. For a list of codes look here:

Here are some, just for fun:
⊥ ∀ ∃ ⊃ ∈

Wow. Thank you. I don't know whether I can absorb all of that, at my advanced age, but it is obviously something that any younger person could do. Very cool.

Of course you can. False modesty is not your strong suit. It's simply pedagogic failure on my part, making it seem more complex than it is.
And, I'm no whippersnapper (whatever that means).
