     1.6    \paragraph{Historical note.} In the original SML90 standard the
     1.7 -  primitive ML type @{ML_type char} did not exists, and the basic @{ML
     1.8 +  primitive ML type @{ML_type char} did not exists, and the @{ML_text
     1.9    "explode: string -> string list"} operation would produce a list of
    1.10 -  singleton strings as in Isabelle/ML today.  When SML97 came out,
    1.11 -  Isabelle did not adopt its slightly anachronistic 8-bit characters,
    1.12 -  but the idea of exploding a string into a list of small strings was
    1.13 -  extended to ``symbols'' as explained above.  Thus Isabelle sources
    1.14 -  can refer to an infinite store of user-defined symbols, without
    1.15 -  having to worry about the multitude of Unicode encodings.
