The printed book shows the example correctly.  In the book,
we use a slashed-b symbol to represent blank.  But it looks
like it doesn't display properly in the HTML.

Actually, it looks like they just dropped the slashed-b
character completely!  The HTML looks rather interesting.
Our technical writers must be using some kind of automatic
tool - there are SAMP /SAMP and B /B tags around every non-
blank string of characters!  And the STRONG, EM, and U tags
aren't properly nested!!!  (Although the latter may be the
fault of the search tool, not the RPG ID dept.)

Anyways, I've forwarded your note on to our technical writers.

Cheers!  Hans
