Akshully, both (or all) alternatives should appear within the
brackets, separated by vertical bars, so:

LTransform
typedef struct {
LPoint translation;
[LOrientation | LOrientation_Ex99] orientation;
LMagnification magnification;
} [LTransform | LTransform_Ex99];

I've checked three manuals on my bookshelf for confirmation.
1. StarTeam (StarBase Corp) -- disclaimer, I wrote this one.
2 ClearCase (Atria, now Rational Corp)
3. Windows & Dos User Guide (MicroSoft)

HTH!
