14.23 Alphabetical list of main options

Those options that undergo string expansion before use are marked with *.

============================8< cut here >8==============================

The actual character depends upon the documentation file format; PDF and
HTML use a dagger †, while plain text uses an asterisk *.

The explanation is there at the start of the list of all of the options;
but then, I looked right past it twice, when looking, and I *knew* it
was documented somewhere.

I've just committed a more prominent notice, in the string expansion
