Re: World Database of Crystallographers: New Specification

 Dear Brian,

>    gb    'United Kingdom'

  Even if it is not ISO 316, you are ordered to include: 

     uk    'United Kingdom'


  There is something screwy either with the .pdf file of the
entity-relationship figure itself or with the way my system shows it up
on the screen and prints it. There are some 5% of the characters missing
although I can see them on your .gif/.jpg 

  e.g. in WDC_INSTITUTION, I have address_p stcode and address_re ion

  On the level of total trivia, in the tables in INSTITUTION and
SOCIETY, 
    country should be country_id and I wonder whether contact_person
should not rather be contact_person_id (i.e. a relation into
WDC_PERSON).

  I shall show the text to the Mrs. She earns money with database
applications. The only thing to hope is that she does not send me or you
a bill!

Best wishes,
  Howard
