!! Punctuation grid
XRML is written on a punctuation grid of periods -- after a number of experiments, these ended up being the most obviously a grid while being the least obstrusive symbol.

In case I run out, there is an online repository: http://timbral.net/periods.txt (found via [[http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.lisp/msg/3b6e98041022937c|newsgroup posting]])

(:description uhm, is it really different from non-electronic writing? :)

XRML started as electronic writing, writing on the/a computer (an AT&T PC-AT running WP 3.x, I believe). I then transitioned to typewriter and long-hand during my extended unplugged stay in Budapest -- and the writing '''condensed''' in the oven of no-revisions.

I always felt there was some other differences between hand-writing, type-writing, and computer-writing. And certainly, the tools you use influence your direction in some way -- the speed of thought bottlenecked, and other factors. Simple text editors vs word-processors vs custom-tools in Emacs (or something else).
