[antlr-interest] Syntax error in action: What is wrong with my syntax?

Action is missing commas in tree subexpressions after [TEST1] and
[TEST2].  I seem to recall getting bit by this because my hardcopy of
the manual was scrambled due to font problems.

I find it very handy to spread out the grammar file vertically (see
below) so that the file/line localizes the error...
