Here is why it works, folks:

Two arbitrary digits, X and Y...the number is represented as 10x+y.

Now, add the individual digits together, you get x+y

Now, subtract from original:  10x+y-(x+y), or 10x+y-x-y

The +y and -y cancel, so you get 10x-x, or 9x.

All multiples of 9 are assigned the same symbol, which changes at each page
reload.  All other numbered symbols are assigned randomly.

Sorry to take the mystery out of it for everyone...
