A bit of Monday afternoon pedantry:
Is there some strange new bit of language showing up on Statalist? Both
Jesper Sorensen and Per Ivar Kaaresen have used "f.ex.". It has taken me
most of the day to figure out that it is meant to signify "for example. I
was thrown by Per's phrase "observed f.ex. mortality". I thought it was some
disease I'd never heard of!  "f.ex." is not in my dictionary of acronyms. Is
there something wrong with the time-honoured, well-known, and trans-lingual,
e.g. ?
