About the data included
Data in this website have been checked carefully, but since a compiler cannot be an expert for everything and this work is usually done during night beside a full-time job and other tasks, presence of some type errors or misinterpretations is possible. Sources are always quoted to allow use of original literature. Data and comments by the compiler are partly included without quotation.
The database is not supposed to decide in cases of controversial views, it tries to provide information as completely as possible, partly with explanatory comments by the compiler, allowing the user to judge on his own.
