Dear Gentlemen and Ladies
I have a question that I havent been able to answer myself so I have joined
this list to see if any here may be able to answer.
My question is: what is the numerical value and by what authority and
reference is it varified for the letter; End Form Sigma.
All languages that I have seen tend to have the end froms at the end of the
alphabet giving the value after all the 'normal' alphabet has been valued,
so that they tend to be in the highest numerical values, such as in Hebrew,
the last five letters are the end forms to make up the counting to one
I thank you for any information that is given
God bless you all
