I suppose a joke that has to be explained probably wasn't very funny to
begin with, and explaining rarely helps. :-) But I'm compelled to
clarify nonetheless.

I wasn't referring to saying _the_words_ "right-pointing triangular
arrow symbols" out loud, but the _symbols_themselves_.

You said you wrote things the way you'd say them out loud. Your example
included "*Admin* module >>*Scheduling*>>*Room Maintenance*" -- so I was
wondering, how do you pronounce ">>"?

It's like asking Prince, during his "artist formerly known as" days, how
he pronounced his name. Call it lame Friday humor. :-}
