I think you're probably right, but it's the "nearly all" that stops one
being 100% certain, and the fact that the typo was:
f >< z F >< z
f >< z z >< F
In the latter case, I think one would be 99.99% certain.
I thought it safer just to quote Srikanth's typo, rather than 'correct' it
myself. Maybe he'll return to the list again some day.
Anyway, thanks for the observation,
