I have always used that "c" designation but I don't know where I picked
it up. In MS word it is found in "insert" under "symbols".

I have a great curiosity waiting to be relieved.
Ever since I started working in the lab... in those days the pathologist
dictated the gross report at cut up and the tech wrote it down...we used
abbreviation of "with" as a "c" with a little horizontal bar above it.
anyone else use this and if so what is its history?
