    Default abbreviations

    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to the list and wonder what DS and DD mean? Could someone tell me what some of the abbreviations on the list mean? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks! I didn't know of that link, it's a great one. I needed all that info, because I get confused a lot of the time too.
