When I tried the last two links, I got 404 'not found' messages, 
and the first link got a 'defective label' error message. 
I run Safari on a Mac under 10.4.10, 
but don't know if that might account for the problem.
I want to use overbar above latin letters for a logical negation, 
and had thought your post might help. (Null A, anyone?) 
The second and third links worked ok.
