Thanks for putting the two symbols side by side Ulrich. I should have done 
that before I ranted. I now see how dissimilar they are and how similar they 
are. I don't believe that it could be considered "blaming the japanese for 
yet another icongraphic blunder" though. That seems to suggest the use of an 
ss symbol is in the same innocent league as combining two incongruent images 
for the purpose of selling a product. (sorry I can't think of an example 
right now.)
