<Element>Specifies an element of the statement that may be expanded upon further on in the syntax section
<Element> = Describes an element specified earlier in the syntax section
[Optional Element]Describes an optional element by enclosing it in square brackets []
Element|ElementDescribes multiple elements, of which one and only one may be used in the syntax
