Unfortunately, the errors that I reported turned out to be only the
tip of the iceberg with that particular volume. Another contributor
(Michel Mohr) had half of his Pinyin inexplicably changed to
Wade-Giles; the title of my article is given differently in the table
of contents, and so on. A disaster. So far, Oxford has not responded
to my requests for an explanation, and the volume editors tell me that
I should not pay undue attention to "glitches" and instead try to look
on the bright side of things.
Lesson learned, again.
