More subtly,

	This important property of Boolean algebra is called
	the duality principle.  It states that every algebraic
	expression deducible from the postulates of Boolean
	algebra remains valid if the operators and identity
	elements are interchanged.  [...] If the dual of an
	algebraic expression is desired, we simply interchange
	OR and AND operators and replace 1's by 0's and 0's
	by 1's.
