Subject: Re: HO249 errors status?

It appears the tables have now been corrected. I received the
following email:


Once again, I would like to thank you for discovering these errors and
bringing them to our attention.

I am pleased to report that the on-line PDF files have recently been
replaced with corrected versions. Since the generation software was no
longer available to us, the errant pages had to be re-created
manually, which was quite painstaking - almost as painful as actually
finding the resources to do it!

Anyway, the world is now a safer place because of your diligence. Well
done, sir!

Best regards,
