Anyone know a site online that shows graphic symbols for different professions?

I'm specifically looking for the graphic symbols for Poets and for Educators.

TIA,

Fred

Hi Fred,

Maybe the question is too vague. Do you have symbols that you want to know what they mean, or do you need poetic/english proofreading marks?

www.symbols.com (http://www.symbols.com), "the world's largest online encyclopedia of graphic symbols!"

"SYMBOLS.com contains more than 2,500 Western signs, arranged into 54 groups according to their graphic characteristics. In 1,600 articles their histories, uses, and meanings are thoroughly discussed."

I'd go with "The Cat in the Hat" /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Oh, O.K., now I get it. I didn't even know that the medical symbol had a name!

Here's one site that has an "education" symbol (Lamp &amp; Book):

There's also a podiatry symbol:

Oh, you said poetry! /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

I looked for an 'Education' symbol for months and couldn't figure out how to search for it! Thanks!

Fred &lt;~~~ now for that Poetry symbol
