The syntax used in that document is unusual and the author appears
to be using nonstandard scoping conventions that lead to symbolizations
that are simply wrong with respect to more standard conventions.  Not
recommended.  One would be much better off consulting a standard
introductory logic text than a random, unvetted document downloaded off
the internet.  Wilfrid Hodges's lovely little book Logic is excellent 
and inexpensive (http://goo.gl/9E2u).    (02)
