In order to specify a symbol, the second space-delimited word must be 4 
characters in length and start and end with [ and ].  So, your examples 
would be:

[\[] is a wall cloud.  [S[] is the Skier.

If you want,  you could also support a 3 character word, but still to be 
a symbol, the first and last characters must be [ and ].  A 3 character 
word/symbol is in the primary table, IMHO.
