    I know y'all are having fun with this thread, but in
    case Andrew's inquiry is at least half-serious:

    > But why is the Hot Beverage character listed under the heading "Weather Symbol"
    > in the Miscellaneous Symbols code chart ? Does it rain tea and coffee in North
    > Korea ? Or does the annotation "can be used to indicate a wait" imply "Oh look,

    It won't be listed under the heading "Weather symbol" in
    the final charts, but instead under "Miscellaneous symbol".
    The current charts are a beta production, based on
    preliminary name list annotations derived from the WG2
    meeting last December in Tokyo. The editorial committee
    is busy improving the name list annotations -- and eventually
    an improved set of charts, with many fixes, will be posted
    for your delectation. In case it is raining, you can sit
    and have a cup of coffee (or tea) while you wait for them.
