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

The Postscript name is logicalnot. Bringhurst says that it is used for negation in symbolic logic. He also calls it an angled dash.

Crooked dash or post-car-crash dash is more like it. ;)
THX everyone for the explanations, I owe you one.
(The pertinent question being "which one?")

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