> RM (Ancient History Dept.) YEARS AGO, the Danish pianist/humorist Victor Borge had a bit with "spoken" punctuation marks. IIRC, those clicks were used for single/double quotes. Plus a lot of others that I disremember.

Wow, there's a pleasant blast from the past! Not *that* ancient, but a *little* before my time to say I teethed on it. Still, like Talulah Bankhead, Ruby Keeler, or Edgar Bergen, I can catch a reference. I*I*RC, his punctuation schtick was relatively drole. :)
