In Classification Web, Table P-PZ 40 now tells us
NOT to use .A14-.A19 for specific genres (collected
poems, collected plays, collected essays, etc.),
but rather to use the number for "collected works".

Is that really true?

In the _Subject Cataloging Manual_ F633 it is still
the old way, and in the 2004 printed tables it is
still the old way.

So I'd just like to verify that the online table 40
is the most valid instruction -- is it????
