From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   H \H\ (h[add]). (Mus.)
      The seventh degree in the diatonic scale, being used by the
      Germans for B natural. See {B}.

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   H \H\ ([amac]ch),
      the eighth letter of the English alphabet, is classed among
      the consonants, and is formed with the mouth organs in the
      same position as that of the succeeding vowel. It is used
      with certain consonants to form digraphs representing sounds
      which are not found in the alphabet, as sh, th, [th], as in
      shall, thing, [th]ine (for zh see [sect]274); also, to modify
      the sounds of some other letters, as when placed after c and
      p, with the former of which it represents a compound sound
      like that of tsh, as in charm (written also tch as in catch),
      with the latter, the sound of f, as in phase, phantom. In
      some words, mostly derived or introduced from foreign
      languages, h following c and g indicates that those
      consonants have the hard sound before e, i, and y, as in
      chemistry, chiromancy, chyle, Ghent, Ghibelline, etc.; in
      some others, ch has the sound of sh, as in chicane. See
      {Guide to Pronunciation}, [sect][sect] 153, 179, 181-3,
      237-8.
  
      Note: The name (aitch) is from the French ache; its form is
               from the Latin, and this from the Greek H, which was
               used as the sign of the spiritus asper (rough
               breathing) before it came to represent the long vowel,
               Gr. [eta]. The Greek H is from Ph[d2]nician, the
               ultimate origin probably being Egyptian. Etymologically
               H is most closely related to c; as in E. horn, L.
               cornu, Gr. ke`ras; E. hele, v. t., conceal; E. hide, L.
               cutis, Gr. ky`tos; E. hundred, L. centum, Gr.
               'e-kat-on, Skr. [csdot]ata.
  
      {H piece} (Mining), the part of a plunger pump which contains
            the valve.

From Jargon File (4.2.0, 31 JAN 2000) [jargon]:
   h   [from SF fandom] A method of `marking' common words, i.e.,
   calling attention to the fact that they are being used in a
   nonstandard, ironic, or humorous way.   Originated in the fannish
   catchphrase "Bheer is the One True Ghod!" from decades ago.   H-infix
   marking of `Ghod' and other words spread into the 1960s
   counterculture via underground comix, and into early hackerdom
   either from the counterculture or from SF fandom (the three
   overlapped heavily at the time).   More recently, the h infix has
   become an expected feature of benchmark names (Dhrystone,
   Rhealstone, etc.); this is probably patterning on the original
   Whetstone (the name of a laboratory) but influenced by the
   fannish/counterculture h infix.
  
  

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   h
  
      1. A simple {markup} language intended for quick conversion of
      existing text to {hypertext}.
  
      2. A method of marking common words to call attention to the
      fact that they are being used in a nonstandard, ironic, or
      humorous way.   Originated in the fannish catchphrase "Bheer
      is the One True Ghod!" from decades ago.   H-infix marking of
      "Ghod" and other words spread into the 1960s counterculture
      via underground comix, and into early hackerdom either from
      the counterculture or from SF fandom (the three overlapped
      heavily at the time).   More recently, the h infix has become
      an expected feature of benchmark names (Dhrystone, Rhealstone,
      etc.); this follows on from the original Whetstone (the name
      of a laboratory) but may have been influenced by the
      fannish/counterculture h infix.
