astronomy symbols

Added a bunch symbols to Emacs xmsi-mode for Math Symbols Input.

◀ ▶ ▲ ▼ ◁ ▷ △ ▽ ☉ ☼ ☾ ☽ ☿ ♁ ♄ ♅ ♆ ♇ ♃ ♂ ♀ ☄. The symbols includes the 9 planets. Note that the male sign ♂ and female sign ♀ is also Mars and Venus, and in Unicode, there's just one char for them.

Also some interesting readings. See: Astronomical symbol.

Also, discovered this article about the pseudo-science book Worlds in Collision, which was a best-seller in 1950s. But today's people probably all forgot about it. By analogy, you should know that many concepts, ideas, practices, we have today in math, sciences, in programing, are probably garbage. In particular, i could personal say this is so with regards to math notations, computer syntaxes, and many computing practices (e.g. Design Patterns, eXtreme Programing, which were hot in early 2000s but today pretty much waned. See: Why Software Suck) See also: Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.

Also added the del operator Nabla symbol ∇. The partial derivative symbol .
