Anyone know what this character is, and what it's for? ASCII 194
I think its the symbol for 'not' used in formal logic To reproduce it in html, you can type ¬ If your browser supports it, you'll just see the symbol above, so type '&_not_;' without the underscores

IIRC, it's a mathematical/logic symbol. I think its name appears on Fog, I just don't have it installed here right now.
