    Just to clarify this, the 'Navigator's Newsletter' is NOT "one of the
    ... more formal forums"
    It is not a peer reviewed journal as is, for example, the 'British
    Journal of Navigation'.
    To give an idea of how far short the 'Newsletter' falls from being a
    serious forum, over recent times it has hosted an unseemly squabble
    between H Zevering and G Huxtable over matters that should, perhaps,
    never have been accepted as worthy of publication, and which were
    eventually shown to be worthless by the 'British Journal of
    Incidentally, such is the strength of a forum like this one, where
    pretty-well anything can be trotted out and put on display. This
    NavList is a great place to float an idea, although before being
    accepted as comparable with the work of Marcq St Hilaire it should
    indeed, as Geoffrey has helpfully suggested, be submitted to an
    appropriate peer-reviewed journal.
