Does anybody have the orignial Alpha/Beta rules book? A scan of the "Mana Chart" page seems to be the perfect solution. Since I'm doing all the vector work on these, maybe somebody would be willing to purchase the booklet? I found one for $8 plus shipping.

Here's official mana symbols which I extracted from documents published by WoTC. I've also included variants with 50% circle-opacity. These textbox-only symbols were used in 8E, MR, DS, and FD.
Also the Portal Power and Toughness symbols. Use the white-backed symbols for creatures' P/T indication. For textbox use, apply the see-through symbols.
Lastly, I've included an official Planechase symbol.

I'm not sure these are strictly important or required since a correct reprint of a Silver Myr from Mirrodin would have the same text box symbol as the Silver Myr from Scars of Mirrodin. It really depends on how specific people want to get with using the exact symbol for that time period.
Also, do you have the Planechase symbols in PNG? I don't have Illustrator or a similar editor on this machine and am curious as to which symbols you've made. I'm assuming it is the Planeswalker symbol (used on the planar die) and the Chaoes symbol (used on the plane cards themselves).

It affected 8th Edition and all of Mirrodin Block.

Does the "fork" symbol of the planar die appear in the textbox of any card?

As for the Planeswalker "fork" symbol, it only ever appears on the planar die.
First announced: http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/arcana/208 - this article also has really high resolution PNGs if you click on either of the two images.
Planechase: http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/feature/51 - the smaller cleaner dice symbol was shown off on this page.
Believe it or not, a different Planeswalker symbol was made to be used for Planeswalkers when they were slated to be printed in Futuresight future frames. Check out the Ask Wizards for August 5th, 2008 for the symbol - http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/askwizards/0808 and https://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtgcom/arcana/1341 (for the other symbols)
I know I am a wealth of useless information such as this, but I hope this helps.

It seems that numbered mana and the tap symbol needs the same treatment.

- The Odyssey era tombstone symbol
The guild symbols
The Inquest purple mana symbol (I've tried recreating it, but it's so-so)
A couple of notes:
The numbers in the numeric mana costs do not seem heavy enough to me. I've used the existing numbers in the MTG 2011 font in preference to the ones found in the SVG file.
The million symbol seems out of proportion to me. The number is not condensed as it appears on the card. I could be missing something here, though. I am not saying I could do any better, but Goblin Hero did mention he was striving for accuracy.
Anyway, thought I'd share what I have so far. It comes with an HTML file that shows you how to combine the glyphs to create mana symbols.
