"But I don't follow the 'affects semantics?' column."

I think it means whether the parsing happens before macros are run or not. In Arc, ssyntax happens after macros, so macros can affect the meaning/behavior of ssyntax. In most Lisps, syntax is read before macros, so macros can't change the meaning.
