I think it works, but as another mentioned, WR will be sorted in a 
different place than -WR.

Personally, I use an asterisk at the end, not because it is necessarily the 
best way, but because it worked in other CAD systems and continues to work 
with Protel. One could also use _not as a suffix, which would be totally 
explicit. And if some program has trouble with underscore, shame on the 
programmer!

Unless you are going to use a program that has a trouble with backslash in 
a net name, which is understandable, using single negation to create a bar 
display is acceptable, but it likewise has the sort problem, or does it?
