can't help on ota and have'nt anything to say on the statement but i have a book reference you might be interested in.

"Symbol Sourcebook" by Henry Dreyfuss
isbn: 0-471-28872-1

i'm sure you're aware of this but just in case..
seems to have been out of print up until about 5 years ago but Dreyfuss seems to have really been recognised in the past few years and now there seems to be plenty of copies around.
