      Description

      In the User Guide, it shows the "shorthand" notation for references but does not
      mention any other notation until the section about formal notation. In the VTL
      Reference, it calls the same notation "regular" notation. The User Guide should
      be changed so that it is consistent with the reference. This also prevents confusion
      about calling it shorthand without mentioning any other notations until much later on.

        i disagree that it's confusing to call "shorthand notation" as such before mentioning any other kind. there doesn't have to be a "regular notation" for there to be a shorthand. having a formal notation is a sufficient counterpoint. i'm just going to change the VTL reference to say "shorthand".
