Liz asked " Does it (×) come through plain text?
What is _notholand_?"

Yes, it came through in plain text and it looks like the one I described. 

How does one do Alt + 0215? I think I would need yoga fingers to do that! 

"Notholand" is my comical way of describing that world of hybrids which have
been given Latin-form botanical names according to the code for cultivated
plants. These Latin-form names are technically known as nothogenera and
nothospecies and are so called because they are false or spurious (the
meaning of the Greek word from which the term is derived). They are spurious
because they do not exist in nature, they are man-made.

Collectively these names are sometimes called nothotaxa.
