Mathematica ver. 2.x in print documented the various shaped cell
brackets -- the ornaments indicating active/inactive, initialization,
sound, etc.  Mathematica 3.x did not, and a number of users called
attention to that omission.

Unless I am mistaken, the new ver. 4.0, once again, fails to document
the kinds of brackets.  If I am correct, why is this simple matter still
not attended to?

(This is not a matter of idle curiosity.  My students have repeatedly
asked about this over the several years I have been teaching with ver.
3.0 and 3.0.1.)
