Charles -
It feels like you are criticising me for not being perfect and knowing 
every symbol you need in advance...No one is denying anyone any 
symbols!...New symbols can be added at any time. All symbols are 
possible, with my hard work entering all 96 GIFs, and then Stephen's 
hard work to inserting them....So I am asking that you be patient and 
kind to me, as I have a lot on my shoulders...

I will now answer Signuno next message...Val ;-)
