I don't see any way to make this clear without a drawing. CLUE has been 
having an awful time with this kind of thing.

I think the current text corresponds to the following drawing (which 
will only make sense in fixed width):


                           \    /
                            \  /
                          environment

       left                  user             right
        / \                  / \               / \
       /   \                /   \             /   \

                              A
                             +-+
                             +-+

with the bottom of the picture being an user's head, nose on top.

Someone who knows how to create SVG will probably have to make one and 
insert it.
