Hi :)
The wikipedia page about "Modifier Tone Letters" says
"Modifier Tone Letters is a Unicode block containing tone markings for Chinese, Chinantec, 
Africanist, and other phonetic transcriptions. It does not contain the standard IPA tone marks, 
which are found in Spacing Modifier Letters."
but i still don't understand what it means.  More to the point i don't see how to cut it down to 
just a couple of words that do make sense.  

I like Alan Monfort's link for "Elements Dock", seeing it makes it easier to understand.

I liked Mateusz Zasuwik's explanation of "Elements dock" as meaning "Show/embed window with Math's 
elements" and having a link helped too

Khagaroth's explanation about "Purple pipe" helped a bit but i didn't understand what "a gradient 
name" was until seeing the context by following his path
"You can find in Draw under Format -> Page -> Background."
But it still doesn't really explain what a pipe is.  My guess is that purple would be on one side 
of the page and some other colour on the other side and they would somehow merge or fade into each 
other in the middle?  

Regards from 

Tom :)

Can somebody explain the meaning?
