Re: gEDA-user: Voltage symbols and Spice

   Different places have different standards, but it is not that uncommon
   to use the Blah Blah A designation in some form to indicate an analog
   supply as opposed to a digital supply.  If you really want to get folks
   frothing about conventions, just bring up the split ground planes vs
   solid ground plane.

   A bit off topic, but is it recommended to call something âAân this
   case? Couldn't it be confused with the fact that VA means Volt-Amperes,
   which is what you measure apparent power in?
