    Version 1.05 (12/23/10): Reworded a couple of locations.
    
    Version 1.0 (7/23/07): The first version of this file, even though I made the 
    list 6 years ago in my main FAQ. I didn't realize there wasn't a separate 
    list of these, so I felt it would be useful to submit this on its own.
