The Apple symbol is ancient; it foes back to the Apple ][ days. The  
modern usage is to call that the key the Command Key which is  
represetnted by the cloverleaf symbol.

By the way, I put together a package which contains images of several,  
far from all, of the special Apple symbols. You can get it as  
AppleKeys.zip from <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2>.

Good Luck,
