I am wondering if its okay for me to given definitons separately in different dialogues...but if all put in one, it would be a block of text.
Added 5/15/2014 6:58:00 PM
They are from different sources so it would be okay in one post with multiple sources. The question is asked as one question and only the first answer will be added to the knowledgebase.
