Clutch Fluid Level Question

Ok this maybe a dumb question, but here goes. I was checking the clutch fluid on my 08 GT in the resovoir there is a left facing "L" which is the level indicator. In the BMW Rep Rom cd it sez to check level put handle bars so the resovoir is horizontal and then shows a picture that the correct level is to the top of the horizontal part of the "L", Am I reading this correctly?

To the top of the bar on the left is Max and bottom of the bar on the right is Min. Tip: thoroughly dry the rubber gasket and all the lid surfaces before installing the lid or it will leak and leak and leak. At least mineral oil doesn't eat paint.

I'm still not quite sure I get it. The mark in the resovoir is an opposite facing "L" are you saying that to the top of the "L" is full and to the botom or horizontal line is minimum? Or maybe a better way to describe it is as a stairstep.. bottom of the step is min and the top is max?
