Charles - I am planning to answer Signuno shortly about the symbol he 
needs, and your diagram attached to this message is the symbol and I 
will explain next message...

but your first message confused me because you showed the 6 hand and I 
thought you were searching for the 6 hand...why did you bring up

Anyway look for my answer to Signuno next -

Val ;-)
