Improvements over the previous version include the

  * Hundreds of new symbols are listed.

  * The index now includes the actual glyph next to
    each symbol name.

    existing ones has been expanded.  It now includes
    many recent tips posted to comp.text.tex.

  * A number of tables have been restructured and
    reorganized for clarity.

  * Various typos have been corrected.

Thanks to the following people who suggested additions
to the list or pointed out errors in the previous

M. Oestvold, Norman Ramsey, and Peter Simon.  (I hope I
didn't miss anyone.)
