Hello Everyone, Nikos, and the Greek programming team...
Thanks for this message. Tension has to do with tensing the muscles of 
the cheeks...OR...it is used in other ways too. For example, see the 
attached diagram. The Tension Symbol can be used to show the lips 
tensely pressing against each other. And when you place little arrows 
to the side of the Tense Lips, you get tense lips that protrude a 
little forward, or are pulled a little back...
