In the following tip text, there seems to be missing text in two places. The first: "will be stored globally as ." As what? I tried '.', but that is a special character in the node REPL that is not a reference to the most recent input. The other place is "in the next line entering will evaluate to 8 as well." Entering what?

The text as viewed from liveBook in Chrome on Windows 7: "The most recent input, return value, or variable used in the REPL environment will be stored globally as . For instance, within REPL if I set let num = 8; in the next line entering will evaluate to 8 as well."

Yes, this is an odd rendering issue from the manuscript conversion. The character that should be there is an underscore _. I'll try to get that fixed in the next release.
