Maybe I should post this anonymously, but it'll be an excersise in humility.

What is the meaning of @Math{...}? I've only seen it in english, not code, and always in situations where the sentance would work just as well without it.

Can you give an example of exactly where you've seen this? It's vaguely similar to the kind of things you do in LaTeX or troff, but not correct for either; may be some other macro language somewhere.
