Notice in Class Web that BS1231-1235.6 is subarranged by Table BS7 *modified*.  The modification is that instead of using BS1235.6.A-Z for special topics, which is the number that the table would have you use, you are directed to use specific numbers that have been created for special topics at BS1237 and BS1238.  The parentheses around BS1235.6.A-Z show that this is not a valid number, and the yellow highlighting indicates that this is a modification of the table.  The listing of special topics Cutter numbers under BS1199 is not used with BS1238.  Individual Cutter numbers are established under BS1238 as they are needed.

In the printed volume that I have in hand, it not only has the special
topics in BS1237-1238, but there is also an instruction in the printed
volume to subarrange according to table BS7.  In the Class web, the class
BS1231-1235.5 is in yellow with parenthesis around them.  Does that mean we
can no longer subarrange according to the topics in BS1199 (which Table BS7
points us to)?  For instance, is the class BS1235.6.E8 is no longer valid
for discussions of ethical matters in Genesis?
