Correspondent = union ( author  recipient )

Enter the string that you want to search for at the prompt, then press
return.

In <C-down-mouse-2>, C means you need to hold down the control key,
mouse-2 means you press the second mouse button (while holding
Control), the down means that the event is triggered when the mouse-2
button goes down (without the "down-", mouse button events trigger
when you release the button, which is normally not what you want when
you are opening a menu).

<fc> is the name of a menu item, facemenu-set-face-from-menu is the
name of the function that is executed.

To find the answer to that,

C-h k <C-down-mouse-2> <fc> <isearch>
or C-h f facemenu-set-face-from-menu

Interactive.  isearch shows matches as you type, it does not wait
until you hit <return> like search-forward does.
