I believe the code of the symbol that Brendan has asked originally is 39, and inserting it with the char() function does not change anything, it will not work because later the parser will stumble on it inside the graphics subsystem. Furthermore, it might be ackward for the users. Imagine that the title of the diagram is entered via a dialog box. Would you want to enter ascii codes into the fields? Probably not. Knowing about the problem allows (in general) building a workaround. Just checked the standard dialog. Entering there symbol with code 39 does not work. But I agree that #146 will be a good substitute for #39. With most fonts the difference is only minor.
