In the source document, but not in the right hand sides of the
relevant catalog entries.

Correct, they don't, but with the catalog in there, that's
no longer the question.

Well, that's how I read his example in
in the context of my message to which he was responding.  That is, I
understood his message at the above quoted URL to be showing a source
document for which a catalog analogous to that in my example was
assumed--one that mapped the various "lefthand sides" found in the
source document into *different* right hand sides.

Perhaps Norm can clarify.
