that is my "convention", that nobody else uses AFAIK, Allen just (as that lazy... suggests) copied a part of the file IMHO. I do it when speaking about Rebol values to distinguish them and the normal text. Example: a: either b= 1[5] [6] When refering to the code above I am trying to (as consistently as possible) use A as a name for the Rebol integer value stored in the Rebol word 'A (whether it is 5 or 6) as opposed to 'A, which denotes the Rebol word as such. That is why I speak about Refined (Rebol function) and 'Refined (Rebol word). My "convention" differs dramatically from Elan's, (maybe others use that too), because what I call A he usually denotes 'a and what I call 'A he usually denotes a (or A). I think, that from the above description is clear, that either mine, or his "convention" looks as being "inside out" or "upside down". When I wrote a HTML version of my, I used a different convention : I simply used a different font (Courier) for the same purpose instead of initial capital letters, which may be even more readable (I hope).
