By using an uppercase letter in the documentation line you quoted, it does not imply that you should be using an uppercase letter in your rules (which would correspond to the complement of the class). It is merely an "identifier" used in the documentation, which similarly uses uppercase "identifiers" elsewhere. To change this to a lowercase letter in the documentation would be OK, but it would not help avoid a misunderstanding: then one could similarly think that they have to use a lowercase letter, which they actually don't. A lower- or uppercase class "name" letter should be used depending on one's needs. Alexander
