The two links would benefit from using TITLE in link definition eg TITLE="Helping Ambulances find your home" and TITLE="London Ambulance Service info"

The first link 'be aware of your surroundings' goes to a site giving advice on how to make your home easier to find by emergency services. Not really an obvious link from the context of the section.

The second one (for London Ambulances) would not work for me - it seemed to need a user name logged in.smiley - erm

I agree that the first link isn't quite what you expect from the context, but it's near enough, so I've left it.

The second one isn't working at all now, but it might be a temporary blip, so I've left it in for now. But I've moved it into the References section, so it's no longer in the main text of the Entry. BBCi Health link also moved.

The Title attributes you suggested have been added.

Pardon? Nah, just browsing and happend to spot your comment. I wasn't actually going around looking for things to correct.

And I was right to leave in the London Ambulance link, because it's working now. Check it.

Ah I guess you were curating. For some reason I imagined (without refreshing my memory, and looking at the entry), that you had written it yourself (ignoring basic notions such as inability of researchers to edit their own entries once they are in EG) smiley - footinmouth

smiley - ok

Aye. You here have an extremely new, nervous, and uncertain curator. But I haven't made too much of a mess yet. (A bit of a mess, but not much. Not yet.)

On that note (of making a bit of a mess, but not much), I've now changed the Entry again, because I'd put in BBCi where I should have put just BBC.

Anyway, PL, what would a person with "Ireland" in his user name be doing writing Entries about the UK?

Good point, though you don't need to be resident somewhere to be interested enough to write about it (though it can help) - I collaborated on A2027008 United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland - Some history and definitions, though I'm not living there.

Yeah. I know I could have been involved in writing it, theoretically. And I know you said you weren't really paying attention. Hence the winking eye, of course.

Anyway, well done on spotting a correction that needed to be made.
