A cursor symbol (^) that indicates where the Newton will insert text written, printed, or typed by the user. The caret is only used in Newton OS 2.x. Earlier versions of Newton OS used a blinking line cursor to indicate where new text would be inserted. A caret shaped gesture can be used to when editing text to indicate where a new insertion point should be placed.
