    I've heard it mentioned "CR" is no longer used for diodes (conventional, power and signal), what did that stand for and when did it go out of use?

    CR = Crystal Rectifier. Started fading away sometime in the early to mid 90's IIRC though I see it used ocassionally.

    I think I prefer "D".
