orion-list conventions used

I do not want to interrupt the thread, but would appreciate it someone
mail offlist an explanation....

I have seen numerous times translations such as below. How do the
bracketed portions relate directly to the original text? For example
s[econd (in Tebet) --] ---what does the "s" correspond to exactly in the
original text? How much is there that it represents before a suggested
reading is supplied from it? How does one decide what a single or a few
characters will indicate in completing the word or passage? 

A reference explaining it would do.
