Thanks Paul.  I didn't intend criticism.

The old Intel _386^TM_DX_Microprocessor_Programmer's_Reference_Manual_ 
here, which I've never used, has similar notation.  When a student, I 
happened to miss the assembler course.  The style of notation must be 
entirely straightforward for professionals.

Probably the one advantage an outsider has is taking almost nothing 
for granted.

Thanks again,                   ... P. L.
