>What is the "&" for at the beginning of some lines?

This marks a hot key for menus and dialogs. E.g.

Save &As...=

will allow you to press Alt+F to activate the file menu, then press s
to save or a to save under a different filename. The hotkeys inside
a menu (e.g. the file menu) should be unique. But it is no problem to
have e.g.

&Exit and &Edit

as edit will be on the top menu bar and activated by ALT+E, whereas
exit will be inside the file menu.

Hope that helps!
