I understand the direct translation of "viz" to be "namely", however, would
some please advise it's correct usage ? (is it "there were four little
pigs, viz, Porky, Snorky, Dorky and Poo" or "there were four little pigs,
viz. Porky, Snorky, Dorky and Poo" or [other])

If replying, please do so to the list and to me directly.

Thank you
Justin
