I think I have used and suggested once to put not plain text strings
like "7400" onto the symbol, but use an attribute, it may have been
device. device may be reserved for spice, so I may have used value
attribute, which should be a better choice.

But still I suggest using attributes for the visible text -- one
advantage is that we can modify it in the schematic, i.e. to "74HCT00".

OK, lets look at

Still I do not really understand that...
