How I wish this page didn't exist. To my proofreaders (paid and unpaid), I thank you that there are not more errors in this very demanding text, and I take full responsibility for the few that crept through (and particularly the 'clanger' I added at the last minute).
To anyone out there who has found an error that isn't listed here, please do notify us at info[at]nakedize.com. The same goes for queries or suggested improvements.
