comment “Sections X to Y” or “Sections X through Y”?
What I meant with "international" was that the audience is not specifically British (or American, for that matter) English readers, but the international scientific (computer science) community at large. Thus, I would be inclined to use what would be most easily understood by the majority of the readers, however, I guess based on the replies to this question, that most everyone would understand "X to Y", whereas someone might be confused by "X through Y".

Hmm, the intended audience is "international", as this is a scientific/academic text.

comment “A” or “an” for symbols that start with @
@RegDwigh—ā: Ok then, I guess the question becomes: Is the @ sign in this context typically pronounced by writers of texts about Java?
