Quickbookers might also find useful a collection of templates used in the Boost.Math library docs.

I have called it html4_symbols but another name might be less version specific, like html_symbols.qbk?

[template Alpha[]'''&#x391;'''] [/ ? Greek capital letter alpha]
[template alpha[]'''&#x3B1;'''] [/ a Greek small letter alpha]

lots of squiggles and mathy thingys using Unicode to make them more readable in the code

[template radic[]'''&#x221A;'''] [/ v square root = radical sign]
[template prop[]'''&#x221D;'''] [/ ? proportional to]
[template infin[]'''&#x221E;'''] [/ 8 infinity]
[template bull[]'''&#x2022;'''] [/ . bullet = black small circle]
[template frac14[]'''&#x00BC;'''] [/ fraction quarter]
[template diams[]'''&#x2666;'''] [/ ? black diamond suit]
[template euro[]'''&#x20AC;'''] [/ ? Euro currency symbol]

The location you suggest would be a logical place to put it?


PS Stefan can *copy* these to make his project standalone and yet reuse other(s) templates?
