Unusual Cell syntax

In Mathematica 6 if one types, for example, ?Plot and examines the syntax of the resulting Cell, one finds that it has two style elements rather than the usual one. The resulting Cell's internal syntax is of the form Cell[stuff, "Print", "PrintUsage"] There is no, as far as I know, documented discussion of ths "two- style" syntax. I presume then, as is true for all undocumented features, that it may disappear from the system at some point. I also assume that there is some sort of cascading inheritance going on here. Does anyone know more about this? Would the folks at WRI care to comment, either on the meaning and use of this syntax, or on its likely persistence in the system (or both :-) ). Thanks to all, David http://scientificarts.com/worklife Now mathematica 6 compatible
