Another possibility. I have been thinking of buying this font (link below) rather than use "Symbol", but have held off since I would not have a major need for most of this stuff yet.
But they do *seem* to look reasonable ... anyone want to spring for it and let us know how good this font is (at various sizes and inside PDF files)? :) http://www.buyfonts.com/symbols_ps/mpl_cs.htm Z -----Original Message----- From: framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-bounces at lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Fred Ridder Sent: Wednesday, January 07, 2009 8:26 PM To: blamborn at comcast.net; framers at lists.frameusers.com Subject: RE: Greater Than Or Equal To symbol in Frame 8 on XP pro Brian Lamborn asked:> I have been searching for how to insert a greater than or equal > to symbol (a less than or equal to symbol would be useful, too) > into my document.

The less-or-equal and greater-or-equal symbols only exist in the Unicode version of Arial (at code points 2264 and 2265), and there are a bunch of niggling details (and maybe a few not so niggling ones) regarding Unicode that don't yet work properly in FrameMaker 8.0, which is the first version that supports Unicode at all. The most reliable approach to incorporating these symbols is the old-fashioned way, by using the appropriate characters in the Symbol font, which occupy code points in the base range. The easiest approach is to use the Windows shortcut for special characters: hold down the Alt key and then type the 4-digit character code on the numeric keypad. For the less-or-equal symbol the character code is 0163, and for greater-or-equal the character code is 0179. And of course you have to format the character as Symbol rather than Arial (which will produce a pound Sterling symbol or a superscript 3 at the specified code points). -Fred Ridder _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as Syed.Hosain at aeris.net.
