The term "background symbol" in the "Usage" section.

What exactly does this term mean? Do we already have an article explaining it that it could be linked to? I'm assuming that "background symbol" is something like what we have listed in Dungeon feature, except that some dungeon features ( specifically floors, ice, air and sold rock ) are not usable in this command, so would they be considered background symbols? "Background symbol" is a term used in NetHack, so it probably wouldn't hurt to have a definition of it here on the NetHackWiki. --Dptr1988 18:29, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

I rewrote the offending section to say "dungeon feature". That's not quite accurate because of the exceptions, and because of what happens when you try to find a grave or open door. Feel free to improve it. --Tjr 09:50, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
