Ah, that is why I wanted EVERYONE to properly use the GATE
symbol with OVERLAYS. That way all Igates would show with "I"'s
on them and all HF gates would show with "H" on them. That was
the plan back in 1996 when we came out with the OVERLAY symbols.
But I just checked FINDU and not a single station anywhere in
the world is properly using the GATE symbol with "H" overlay...
Oh well. Maybe some client software has the symbols misslabled?
