Yes. You can write the Prop Symbol in SignText. But first, let me  
show you what it looks like. Go to:


(see attached screen capture)

This is a writing of a Norwegian craftsman with his foot on a log,  
and holding a hammer...

The Prop Symbol is composed of two small curves close together...this  
Prop Symbol can represent anything...you name it in a footnote  
below...like Hammer in this diagram...

See next message for finding it in SignText....
