I don't know how I missed this, really I don't... "several" cannot be
used with "information", because of (I think) plurality rules. "types of
information" or "pieces of information" would work grammatically, but
the former is not ideal aesthetically and I'm not sure the latter is
accurate... "things" would work both grammatically and aesthetically,
and has the correct meaning, but I'm not *quite* sure it isn't too
colloquial or imprecise.

If no one comes up with any better suggestions, I'll go with "types of

Better, and passable, but it would be better if they were parallel. This
is within tolerances as it is, though.

" for ex." -> ", for instance," (or ", for example," would work, but I
think "instance" is preferable)

side of it.
