Good - nice to know it actually works!

By the way, if you need the logo in italics, \reflectbox is not good  
(a reflected italic letter slopes the wrong way!), but you may be  
able to use \rotatebox instead. Provided the 'E' is fairly  
symmetrical top/bottom, this looks OK.

The "best" solution, of course, is to use the proper Ǝ character (U 
+018E), but very few fonts currently support this, so graphic  
workarounds are the usual approach.
