The obvious ASCII for ¢ would be c/ or C/ or c| or c| or maybe just |.
I like ¢,but: c/$foo # ASCII of ¢$foo d/$foo # d() divided by $foo is rather confusing. (Same goes for |). So the Term Term exclusion makes me rather lean towards |. Whether it's the canonical sigil or the ASCII of ¢ doesn't much matter to me. Trey
