yes, i did place the cursor on the word "implementation"... yes, i called it a 
"keyword" because it is a keyword into the index of the help document structure...

my apologies for any confusion... situations like this will, however, happen 
because there are only enough words to describe something... in the above, 
"implementation" is a reserved word in the language but when searching 
documentation, it is an/the index key word...

we need to figure what to call these things so that we can avoid this confusion 
in the future... especially in this discussion... i've already seen numerous 
other similar confusion incidents in this topic, too :?
