The resulting chart makes conceptual sense but it is difficult to read and so below is the chart expanded into complete sentences, which makes it easier to read but it is more difficult to follow conceptually. The best way to combine the advantages of both of these renditions of the same information is to have them viewed simultaneously side by side in printed forms or in seperate windows.
