Hi all,

We "polish up" developer release notes, and I'm wondering what the proper
term is to describe a code string. My writers keep calling it "new key", but
after doing some reading, it looks like "new key value pair" would be more
Thoughts? In that case, would it be key value pair, key-value pair, or
key/value pair? Or name/value pair?


<add key="ImageProcessingLibraryImpl.Path" value=
MIL10_0\MILImageProcessingImpl.DLL" />
