You are a busy woman! Thank you for the Peter Fidler merge. I imagine there are quite a few overlaps with him in particular!

Hullo Esme. Thank you for taking the time to fix data errors including a missing references tag. see However during the same edit you removed a formating style that I added to the profile to headings within a section I called Timeline. The style I use for these timeline headings is :-

===->yyyy an event type @ precise location === I don't believe that the -> (two letter arrow) causes any data errors and it certainly doesn't cause any page display error in HTML. I believe that it is acceptable to have latitude in the way non-ppp profiles are styled so I don't understand why you removed all my -> (arrows) . Thanks again for your time.
