    I've looked at a few of these, posted in this group, and I'm competely
    unable to understand any of it. Is there some sort of program that
    makes these circuits? How does one translate them to something
    recognizable?

    I do mine by hand. I usually try to
    minimize the occupied area. For example,
    I use 100k or R13 for a resister instead
    of trying to draw a box or wavy line.

    By the way, I use plain ascii text and ascii
    circuits when I'm trying to create an "archival"
    document. I figure that there will still be
    plain text readers available for a long time.

  4. I read in sci.electronics.design that normanstrong
    Use Courier font. Set your e-mail reader to a line-length of 80
    characters.

    It's very likely that that will solve your problem. If it doesn't, print
    out a mangled graphic, scan it to a JPEG (not OCR!!), put it on a.b.s.e.
    and tell us here that you've done that.

    Look at them in a fixed-pitch font, e.g. Courier. That makes the spaces as
    wide as the characters, so that everything lines up.

    Cheers,
