Answering to Jon Hanna's question:
>> It does seem odd that this German gloss is presented here.
>It does indeed. Is there a user community that makes much use of it?
Yes, there is. ''Klammeraffe'' is a well established traditional name for
the @ thing predating its use in email addresses. The younger ones know it
as At-Zeichen, but the older ones still use ''Klammeraffe''.
After some research, I called it ''Arrobazeichen'' in my book Schnell ans
Ziel mit LaTeX2e.
P.S. IMO, the annotation ''Klammeraffe'' should be kept. We have some
german annotations to other characters, too.
