Symbols for various particles[edit]

Hi Tim, I noticed you made a few good changes to the
page. From your homepage I gather you know a fair amount more about particle physics than I do. One of my pet projects has been to create templates that facilitate displaying symbols for particles in wikipedia pages. See {{SubatomicParticle}} and {{SubatomicParticle/list}} for an example of what I mean. Though I have a keen interest in physics, I have no formal education in this area and lack required knowledge to gather certain information. For instance, the {{SymbolForSubatomicParticle}} page was created by me based on information from wikipedia pages. However, I have no way to verify the accuracy of the symbols in this template. Because of this and because it is wikipedia's standard to require references for all information, I was hoping you could either verify the accuracy of the templates, help me find somebody else that can do this or help me find references and help me understand what I am looking at so I can verify it myself. Also, I would like to encourage you to use these templates to create symbols for elements, because I hope it'll make it easier to do so, and so we can have a consitant look and feel across wikipedia pages about physics and to make it easier to make adjustmenting a symbol across all pages easier, should that be required.
