Because a specific glossary term can have different definitions in different contexts, do not assume that a

before to each change.
System users can easily determine what Codification glossary terms and definitions
were current as of any particular date. The ARCHIVE tab of each Section 20 page provides
access to all past versions of the Section’s glossary terms and definitions.
Note that if any of the Section’s content was different on the date you selected from
what it currently is, all of the archived content is displayed with the strikethrough font, even
