Barbara, any comments from AFII? I'll mirror the other 5 arrows into
new slots so there will be versions with and without angled heads.
Btw, yesterday I posted a rather long list of symmetry cases (or think
I did). If this was not distributed, let me know, and I'll resend the
thing. (lots of "Question on XXX:" remarks).

Thanks for a good suggestion. Something along these lines will make
them far less ugly.

It's a weird thing too. For clarity: this is char #204, (index
F524). Try to use hashes for characters in fonts if you will to avoid
confusion with the table indices.
I'll keep your arrow table in the back of my head for the
future. Thanks for the time spent on that.
