Fair enough. And not about to suggest that we make some
significant fraction of HP Unix documentation invalid :-)

| I looked through the inlines, especially tech.char.class, and as
| my examples suggest, the ones that seemed most natural in Commands

Yep. We should just leave it the way it is, I think. I'll put
the RFE back in for Command and Literal and we can revisit at
the next meeting.

| Thanks and Happy Holidays.

Same to you! And everyone else on the list! :-)
