Hi everyone i am not sure if this question belongs to this group or not but i think mac users can answer it faster ... i was using a portal with a custom theme of mac_os_x where to navigate a submenu one needs to hover over a "@" symbol. Now my question is how is @ related to mac_os does it have any meaning attached like navigation or something ....thanks in advance
