A symbol indicating the location for a correction.

Literally a 'sign of return', a signe-de-renvoi is a graphic symbol marking a place where a correction or insertion is to be made. A corresponding symbol, usually written in the margin, introduces the corrected text or insertion. A signe-de-renvoi may also mark a cross-reference.
