Surely you mean "how many bits in an octet" ;-)
I prefer something like the examples above. Honestly, I don't
know what the names of many syntax features are, but I usually
know how to use and interpret them. But, one positive side
effect of this is that if I ever do get challenged with a "what
is the name of this feature?" question, I will finally be
motivated to go look it up.
