Thanks for the input, but it's been resolved. Wikipedia lied again, and I fell for it. Hope I didn't waste too much of your time.
Two points, with respect:
1) Many people don't know what BIS is. In fact, when using acronyms please spell out the title in full with the acronym in parathesis the first time
you use the title or phase, i.e. - Bank of International Settlements (BIS). We have people of all nationalities, interests, backgrounds and ages who
may not have a clue to what you are discussing. Likewise, 'atm'. Just because you and your close associates know what it means, doesn't mean that
others do. It is a sign of respect and the wish to communicate clearly to explain your shortcuts.
2) Wikipedia did not lie. Wikipedia is not a person and relies on users to maintain current & truthful information. One of several reasons why
it's not a 'solid' source. A good starting point and okay for 'quick and dirty'.
