Symbology with data from a field superimposed

I have a point file of buildings 3 stories or greater, the table has a field with the number of stories in it. ISO is requesting a map of these points symbolized as a triangle with the number of stories inside the triangle. How can I do this? I am running ArcInfo 9.3.1

Mapping Center Answer:

Specify a triangle as your symbol and label the features ensuring the labels are positioned coincident with the feature itself. The key will be to make the triangle large enough (or label small enough) to appear to contain the label.
