SV: [Pali] NPC Part 1 question about anto

NPC page 39 has the meaning of anto as "inside", but I could not find it
with that meaning in the PTS dictionary. Therein antara(a) is translated in
a few entries as "in" or "inside". Could the NPC information be a mistake?

I checked the web version of the PTS dictionary -
- and found:
"Anto (indecl.) [Sk. antaḥ; Av antarə Lat. inter, Oir. etar between, Ohg. untar; Idg. *entar, compar. of *en (in) = inner, inside] prep. inside, either c. acc. denoting direction = into, or c. loc. denoting place where = in. As prefix (˚ -- ) in, within, inside, inner (see cpds.)"
So both "inside" and "in" are included.
