what does that symbol mean?

The "symbol" is the kanji for ki. (see title, filename, and hint to the left of the download link). Ki is analogous to chi in the same way that Aikido is analogous to Tai Chi.

This is my question:

Is this the standard Kanji? The 5th & 6th strokes (in the lower left) look a bit simpler then what I've seen in the past. The version I saw had a more vertical 5th & 6th, with two more little daubs on each side. (or was this an old-fashioned grammar, or non-standard?)

This is the standard "ki" for modern Japanese. There's an older, more traditional character as well, and that's what you're talking about.

see this:

The variant character is on there too (in the tables somewhat near the top), and links to:

Probably they still use the older character in Taiwan and Hong Kong, and use an even simpler one in the PRC.

would this be like me making a very fancy looking "S" (or other arbitrary letter) or is there some deeper meaning you're trying to display?
