I-Beam

You may already be familiar with the Macintosh word processing I-beam (pronounced eye-beam). It looks like this (or very similar): The tiny crossbar just below the center of the I-beam indicates the “baseline” of type, that invisible line that type sits upon.

On the Mac, the I-beam is a visual clue that you are now in a typing mode, as opposed to seeing an arrow or a cross-hair or any number of other “cursors” that appear in various applications.
