Hi,

the new symbols \bulletdashcirc and \circdashbullet are too long, in addition the dash penetrates the inside of the circle.
I'd also advocate to scale down the circle and bullet slightly.

The dash penetrating the inside of the circle is just an artifact of the fact that it's a rule, and different dvitops programs use different schemes for
putting in rules (in essence, they "hint" the rules differently). This will
go away if the symbols are created as individual characters, rather than built up, so I guess I'll do that.

However, I need to see an example of just how long you want the dash
and what size you want the bullet and circle. Can you send me an
example? Possibly, the only example you have is some printed one,
in which case perhaps you can fax me a page containing the character,
preferably close to other symbols. (713) 893-6200.
