On/off power button symbol

Message #1 - Posted 2006/02/12 - D.M. Procida

See that symbol on your Mac's power button? Wossat called then? I'm trying to find it in one of the billion fonts I have installed here.

It's the "stand by" IEC 5009 symbol as defined by IEC/ISO/JTC1.

It's actually the Standby symbol (on/off has the 1 completely enclosed by the 0) and is apparently defined by IEC 417, No. 5009. Which probably doesn't help...

Is there, anywhere on that web site, anything useful ?

Like a list of their standards, or perhaps there's a document there that lists the symbols they've declared standard.

I got such a list from a Google search. The link to the homepage was just to link to the org that controls the standard.
