    Documents say "mandated by the FDA" -- is it actually international?
    I don't believe I have ever seen it. Can you, heh heh, buy something
    with it on it and scan us a sample of it in use?

    Does the FDA or anyone distribute a font with this symbol in it?

    Radura is Italian for a 'glade' or 'clearing' for what that is worth.

    Depending on answers to the above, I would certainly consider popping
    the RADURA into a bucket with the DO NOT LITTER SIGN. (It still
    irritates me that Ken vetoed that one. I see it *everywhere* on
    packaging from more and more countries.)
