Hi Val,
     your way is similar to mine, but yours is much easier.

     I was wondering how easy it would be to use SVG with OpenOffice or 
Libre Office.
     I found this add on for them. http://www.haumacher.de/svg-import/
Then when I open an SVG it opens in Draw.


I can ungroup the column and show choose some signs.  Then copy and 
paste in a text document.




Even when close up the symbols still look really good.



What I don't know is if Microsoft Word will display everything 
correctly.  See attached.
