     1 printString asSymbol

[I had written in a previous message that you could use asSymbol to 
create symbols out of things which weren't identifiers, but I had 
forgotten that asSymbol only worked on Strings or Characters -- Bob's 
post reminded me that you had to perform "asSymbol" on the printString].
