John, welcome to D&N and thank you for your correction. Of course, you scientific swots are rather keen on exactitude but, alas, you won't find much of it round here! However, this does give me the chance to thank you for your excellent books, three of which are sitting on the shelf to my left. If only my science teachers had enjoyed your gift for explaining and clarifying; and if only I hadn't been such an idler. They'll carve "If only ..." on my headstone!
