in reply to RFC: Entity names for square brackets.

I vote for &lsb; and &rsb;. I agree that &sql; calls to mind SQL, but I doubt that most Perl programmers deal much with "lsb" meaning "least significant bit(s)".

Besides which, I call 'em "left square bracket" / "right square bracket", so &lsb; and &rsb; make nice mnemonics. :-)

[hippo]: So if you don't drink as much milk and not as often you are said to drink less milk on fewer days. Confusing, eh?
[Eily]: same as many/much, few/little
[Discipulus]: so my 'less' usage sounded not so correct? 'fewer' was more appropriate? i take a note too
Discipulus $ENV{PAGER}='fewer '
[Corion]: Discipulus: Hahahaa! ;)
[Corion]: This would be a great April fools joke, since it certainly makes sense to show fewer pages on screen :)
