>>The dictionary calls it an "at" sign meaning "each" for use in business
equations, such as on a sales receipt:

4 apples @ 20? = 80? <<

Well, my experiment with using WordPerfect's character set for the cents
symbol didn't work, did it? :-D I guess it doesn't transmit well in

I would like to see the cents symbol replace the ^ (caret) symbol on the
standard keyboard, though, and also transmit properly to my cyber
friends. Don't you think "cents" would be used more often than "^"?

(I almost wrote that "cents" should replace the @ symbol until I typed my
e-mail address! Bad choice, huh?)
