Abstract.
New electron density diagnostic line ratios are presented for the O iv 2s 2 2p 2 P{
2s2p 2 4 P and S iv 3s 2 3p 2 P{3s3p 2 4 P intercombination lines around 1400  A. A
comparison of these with observational data for the symbiotic star RR Telescopii
(RR Tel), obtained with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (stis), reveals
generally very good agreement between theory and observation. However the S iv
