                                          (c) In no instance shall a word be replaced by a synonym of that word and no change shall be made in a circumstance where the use of the replacement word or symbol, or a change in section or subsection numbering or lettering, could alter the meaning of the Code language.

 

                                          (d) The Law Department shall periodically provide to the Chief Clerk of Council a listing of the standardized words or symbols being used.
