Hi Alexandre!
Use the amssymb package, and use $\therefore$ (the dollar signs are for math mode). Your question is also discussed at http://tug.org/mail-archives/texhax/2006-April/006009.html.
Hope that helps,
Bob Wilson

I think you're refering to the inverted pawnbrokers' sign which is 
read as "therefore" or "then" ( I think) in mathematics. The macro In 
the amsmath usepackage is "\therefore".
I hope it helps.
By the way, folks, I'm Paul, a blind student of software engineering 
from England. I'll probably be asking very similar questions about 
the visual effects of tex/latex macros meself. :-)
Cheers, Paul
