The StrongHelp says 
"The shortcut is 'free' when the letters that are before and after it in
the text, are of a different type than the first and last letter of the
shortcut (or something like that..)"

So it is down to exactly what the (or something like that..) means...

If you are typing a new dcument there is an implicit "end of" as there is
nothing after the bit you type... I called that a CR to simplify it!

but ``1 expands if there are spaces or a TAB following as that is

So I have changed the CR for "white space"

Explanations can get too complicated. Only Fred could define what
"Different" means and I don't think that would be exactly simple...
