imo that's an ugly character, the  "¬" symbol. Even uglier than
my "Ya" text.... :-)

Given the following:

 a) <SomeChick>
      really_ugly?=True
    </SomeChick>

or

 a) <SomeChick>
      really_ugly?=¬
    </SomeChick>
 
I have my own opinion about which is more readable. Maybe the 
second one is more polite and less likely to cause violence, I 
don't know..... there is an argument for safety in obscurity....
