I use 1,0 for male. 0,1 for female. Works for me. But I have to say, I was looking for those symbols as well when I got mine…Just to follow up, I ended up scoring a DYMO LetraTag at the Mart of Wal. It was less than $20 and they had all the replacement tapes for it right there.
It has an instruction manual, but you don't need it. It runs off 4 AA batteries. As mOlsx pointed out, you can print two lines. It also has a selection of symbols you can print, but there is no male or female symbol. You can, however print a picture of a spider or a piece of cheese, so there is that.
I'm happy with it. Thanks to all for the input!
