Have your article at A3000952. Nothing has been updated yet. Let me know if you have any issues/queries etc.

Thanks for keeping me in touch. I'm pleased you've got this onesmiley - ok

Like I said at the top of the PR thread, the thing I'm really hoping for here is to keep this EG-bound piece linked to the now UG-bound alternative version. I always intended them to be complementary, and to be read as a pair.

That sets two challenges Sub-Ed-wise. First is, retaining a link to a non-EG Entry. Second (not absolutely essential, but it would be great) is facilitating simultaneous appearance on the Front Page. Because the UnderGuide runs on Fridays only, that presumes a weekend slot for the EG-version. Both those things, I guess, would need Jimster's blessing and dispensation.

As for more conventional editing matters, please feel free to suggest changes. It's a bit clunky in places. It certainly could be improved.

I ran it past the italics and I am sorry to say that the article cannot be linked to the UG article. I am sorry about this.

I have not run the second suggestion by them, but could do so when I send the Entry back to them.

Thanks for trying, anyway.
I'll ask Jims myself.
