LED DNP on a schematic: what does it mean? Answered

I know I am probably going to feel like an idiot with the answer, but I can't seem to find one online anywhere.

I'm looking to make this circuit but have no idea what DNP stands for.

Thanks in advance!

Type "DNP" into Wikipedia, and it gives you the answer Frollard provided, right there on the disambiguation page.

"Do Not Place", a term used in Printed circuit board design to denote the omitting of a component

One LED is mounted on the board, the other is on a socket, so you can put it somewhere else.
