    "Herbert, I reread Villarceau and your graphical method of determining the Symmedian point was not obvious to me. Could you give us more detail of your method using a 90-45-45 triangle?"

    I too reread page 38 of Villarceau book as well as Herbert's post.
    I too do not see where Herbert's graphical method is described in a way I can understand. Or how 90-45-45 triangle is related to page 38 of Villarceau book.
    I too would like to learn more of this method.
