Here, "name", "size", "used", etc. stand for something else, so they
should be in @var, both inside @samp and in the text that describes

If you have a period that doesn't end a sentence and is followed by a
space, put a @: between the period and the space, so that the
typesetter will know this isn't the end of a sentence, and typesets
the space correctly.  IOW, "e.g.@:".  And I think you mean "i.e.", not
"e.g." here (and elsewhere in this table).

"Lisp interpreter", I think.
