I agree with you, Adam. I personally would write it in the simplest  
way possible, without too many detailed symbols, unless we were  
writing research on detailed palm facings. The more detailed symbols,  
pointed to in the attached diagram, are all useful and can certainly  
be used, but when it comes to writing for everyday use, they usually  
can be avoided...;-)
