    Well, Mitch, which rounding algorithms are you aware of?
    
    Sin(32d 07') = 0.53164497... and Sin(32d 43') = 0.54048508...
    
    So, rounded to 5 places after the decimal point, we would expect to see 
    0.53164 and 0.54049, using ANY rounding algorithm that I can possibly think 
    of.
    
    What does Bowditch have?

    values given for 32-07 and 32-43 seem mutually exclusive using the rounding 
    algorithms I'm aware of.
