Subj: FAQ - Abbreviations

I know that this is slightly offtopic (fogive me please);
however, I thought that having a "standard" listing of these
available to all would be nice as there have been more than
one question concerning them here::::

I've delted quite a bit of the original message so that only
the Abrv's remain...
