       The dictionary has been growing since 1985 and now contains
       over 13000 definitions totalling nearly five megabytes of
       text. Entries are cross-referenced to each other and to
       related resources elsewhere on the net.
       
       Where LaTeX commands for certain non-ASCII symbols are
       mentioned, they are described in their own entries. "\" is
       also used to represent the Greek lower-case lambda used in
       lambda-calculus. Cross-references to other entries look like
       this. Note that not all cross-references actually lead
       anywhere yet, but if you find one that leads to something
       inappropriate, please let the maintainer know. Dates after
       entries indicate when that entry was last updated. They do
       not imply that it was up-to-date at that time.
