      Greetings Folks!

      Hmmm, looking through the code and data I'm thinking that Andrew

      It looks like the BONUS:PCLEVEL token code will parse both TYPE.text
      and TYPE=text to the same output. I haven't found the code that
      utilizes the output yet but . . .

      The only place I found  BONUS:PCLEVEL|TEXT in the data is in the
      "pcgen_test_advanced_feats.lst file where it uses the following:

      TYPE:OutsiderTest BONUS:PCLEVEL|TYPE=Base
      TYPE:OutsiderTest BONUS:PCLEVEL|TYPE=Arcane

      So the same LST tag is used for both Class types and Spell types.

      Its also important to note that no PCGen code uses this syntax.

      Based on this, I'm thinking that the two tag dictionary entries can be
      combined into one entry with the dual use covered by both.

      Can I get a code monkey to confirm what I've surmised?
