Re: docs on bracket shapes


Hi Murray,

what is with Pauls excelent tutorial at

http://www.mathsource.com/Content/General/Tutorials/Programming/0209-810

? It is just updated to version 4. 

I expect that the most of the users never mind about the funny blue
lines
on the right margin of the notebooks. 

Regards
  Jens
