Thank you, Malcolm. Fixed 2019-12-10.
Thank you again, Malcolm.
I LOVE it when someone won't let me off the hook, and Demands accuracy. My kind of guy.

I have therefore added the links to Wikipedia, to save you the time and trouble of searching for verification.

American speak - Wikipedia Rules. It always has.
British speak - - Wikipedia Rule. They always have.
Please contribute. The #1 site in my book.

If you publish something questionable, 50 people will be all over you in no time. Good stuff. The way it should be. Experts are in charge.
