I'm ancient enough to remember when people said "Lsd" and meant
"pounds, shillings and pence" with the pound sign written as a capital in
cursive hand with an equals sign through its middle.
Am ploughing my way through an early 17th. century document, in secretary hand, and want
to get this correct. "xl" with a hyphen through the middle of the "l"
was, in olden days, "ten pounds" ...right?
