What matters is what the user sees. If you are inserting ownership comments, then probably better stick to using (R) or (TM) If the symbol you want displays okay on the screen for the users when not in vi, then be happy. Smilie

Having worked on converting XES to PCL and having to read every character in so that I knew how to configure the conversion software, reading HEX is our job, not the end user's so you need to focus on what they see. I assume that they are not using vi, of course.
