Says you.  All I know is that

  [SunOS 5.7] bash$  grep or /usr/lib/font/devpost/S
  or      20      3       124
  or      60      0       218

and 218 corresponds to the mathematical "or" ("logicalor")
in Adobe's SymbolEncoding (124 is the "bar" character).
But it apparently gets shadowed by the first "or" character
in the file anyway.  Didn't even know it was legal to have
two different characters with the same name.  Like I said,
the whole thing's a bit screwy.
