I think this somehow needs to be combined with the symbols for comments on chess moves from the Reassess Your Chess Workbook:

! = excellent move
!! = brilliant move
!? = interesting move
?! = dubious move
? = poor move
?? = blunder

I mean, you could write a whole oulipian novel using nothing but symbols.

yea, unfortunately I wasn't able to get teh spacing right, ooof- but the symbls come across as sometimes logical and sometimes not, "+" for "Tod/Death" for example- huh?
