Yes, you're right, Patricia, of course. I recently got a flyer from
the Viking Society advertising the 3rd editions of the reader and
glossary (Maybe you did too?). I think that's what led me astray.
Well, that's my excuse anyway. Sulks: why can't everyone just have
the same name. Save ourselves a lot of confusion...
