@Robert
had to lookup percontation point and found other unusual punctuation marks https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/12710/13-little-known-punctuation-marks-we-should-be-using
I see the inverted question mark being used in Spanish but not in English

Hi jbk:

Thank you for the link. Very interesting.

I would guess that the new word MrBCX learned yesterday is "eroteme", which is the ClassName in the new GUI example in the BCX Help file 'PRINT' section.
