There are definitely some inconsistencies. I created the pages because I couldn't find ready access to the database. These pages are derived from the assertion files in the MacProlog implementation of UPSID. That implementation could be the source of some errors, as could my conversion from that implementation. Feedback welcome. Jeffrey
