@ lovelove - Former and latter are usually used when you've previously mentioned two things in a sentence. Then former refers to the first thing and latter to the last thing mentioned. In the case of your diagrams, it's not entirely clear which branch you mean when you tell us to read the former one first. Is "always read the top branch first" what you mean? Btw, often native English speakers need to re-read a sentence when "former" and "latter" appear, so you might as well use something else anyway. :)

In any case, thanks for the great series!

Thanks! I'll apply it from the next lecture, "former" to "top". :-|

Wow, this last one is so simple but so useful. I feel like I finally understand the double hane variation! Thank you, lovelove.

Hmm.. I think it depends on situation. Black can attach over white.
