VisibleList -- the class of all visible lists


There are three types of lists that can be entered directly from the keyboard, as follows.
i1 : {a,b,c}

o1 = {a, b, c}

o1 : List
i2 : [a,b,c]

o2 = [a, b, c]

o2 : Array
i3 : (a,b,c)

o3 = (a, b, c)

o3 : Sequence
We introduce the class of visible lists as a convenience for referring to lists of these types.
