Expand & Contract
A feature of some pages Electricka's web site that makes it possible for you to see or hide information
on a page. It is called Expand & Contract because, when you invoke it, the feature adds
formerly hidden information to the initially visible portions of the page.
Thus it expands and amplifies what the initially visible portions
have to say. You may also contract or hide a portion of the page that
you previously expanded. The Expand & Contract feature also goes by the names
twistie and dropdown.

icon. An emoticon is so named because it usually appears in the form of
an image (icon) that conveys emotion. See also: smiley.

a pre-set character
sequence. A few emotions can be expressed this way.

Site References And Reference Markers

notation number, such as is used with a footnote or endnote, in that it is a
symbol that marks the location of commented text.

of a human face.
