Do you mean that in all these years you have never read anywhere that  
the Mathemaitca programming language is based on the *FullForm* of  
expressions?
Or are you suggesting that a statement to this effect can't be found  
in the documentation, never mind countless post to the MathGroup?

And if you have known that, has it never occured to you to try  
something like this:

FullForm[Hold[1;]]

Hold[CompoundExpression[1, Null]]

?
