So maybe ". $" notation isn't as good as I thought. I'd be happy to get rid of it. It doesn't add any real capabilities to the notation, and it's nice to have a warning-free grammar. So... if someone *wants* ". $" notation, please speak up ASAP. Otherwise, I'll just remove it soon. But this expedition *did* end up pointing out a grammar problem, namely, that we weren't supporting scomments after period. So it was still worthwhile. --- David A. Wheeler
