Ok, I have seen some discussion of the mechanics of transaction fees, still not completely clear on those, but I wanted to straighten something out I was wondering about.  Assuming bitcoins deflate slightly, to the point where a 10,000 bitcoin transfer can be expected to generate a fee (which would be 5 bitcoins, if I understand correctly)  If I send 10K bitcoins to Bob, does that mean he receives 9995 and whoever processed the transaction receives 5?  Or does it mean that I am debited 10,005 and he receives 10k?

The Bitcoin software, network, and concept is called "Bitcoin" with a capitalized "B". Bitcoin currency units are called "bitcoins" with a lowercase "b" -- this is often abbreviated BTC.

The sender pays the fee, so you would send out 10,005 BTC and the recipient gets 10,000. There's an article on this in the wiki:
