For OED owners, check out the entry for "set." I believe it's the longest
in the dictionary--and for those of you unfamiliar with the Oxford English
Dictionary, that means really long, as in over 20 pages of definitions
and examples. There is nothing simple about the usage of "set." I suspect
we could argue about its usage endlessly here on TECHWR-L.
