"SMILES is a simple yet comprehensive chemical nomenclature." Or so they claim
on their Home Page!

. o O (SMILES.... maybe another term for the glossary?)

Basically its a set of rules for writing chemical formula in text.
Once you get the hang of it it's pretty good, and I especially like the
structure drawing program at:

Would it be possible to have the SMILES notation for each entry that can have
one and make this 'clickable' to give a 2D drawn structure, or should the drawn
structure be included anyway?
