some more people may be able to help you if you explain
what a `halfbox' is. My dictionaries don't tell me.
(To be sure, Google shows many pages, but they all seem
to presuppose that readers know what a halfbox is.)
Non-English speakers may as well not know what an `annuity'
and `actuarial' are. And some readers of this list may know what
`actuarial' is, but still not what `actuarial notation' is.
I also wouldn't be surprised to learn that there are different
national traditions concerning such notation.
