    Yes, you're right that there are parenthetical references to 'Rios', but those sections are directly pulled from Moore unedited, aren't they? Bowditch didn't write those references. Also note that they are way out of date. The "large and expensive tables" refer to a completely different method of clearing lunars which Mendoza Rios worked on some years earlier.

    Note: The following question is WAY off-topic but my curiosity is killing me:
    Bruce, do you have any idea why your "Re:" messages end up with strange gaps and odd characters in the Subject line (they make it that way to the Nav-L archive, too, so I conclude that it's 'not just me')? I notice that you have an AOL e-mail address, as do I, for this list... do you post from an Apple Mac or an older version of AOL or something? This is NOT important, but I had to ask. :-)
