"2.3.7" has replaced "2003-01-05" and "Alpha" in the headings.

The history has links to the earlier revisions of the page.

is one of the earlier revisions with the date and "Alpha".

The latest is better?  Tolerable?  Will a footnote mentioning that 
2.3.7 was annotated as alpha help? Don't bother mentioning "alpha"?

I'm still curious about the syntax of 2.3.6 and 2.3.7.  Anyone have an 
explanation or idea?  Anyone encountering Pieter Muller these days? 
Certainly he can explain.

Thx,                               ... P.L.
