[Classweb-users] See KF1 instructions

The enhancement to Class Web that I mentioned in my message of 10/18/07 has now been installed.  The "see" references in the various KF tables are now being calculated by the system.  The Enhanced and Hierarchy browsers are now displaying references to built numbers appropriate to the context of the browse rather than references to numbers from a table.

We have become so accustomed to having the Enhanced or Hierarchy Browser apply the tables and build the numbers for us, that it was quite surprising to find it much easier to use the Standard Browser in these cases.
Thank you, Paul, and thanks also to John Hostage for suggesting that one must click up to the next level in the hierarchy pane to see the range of numbers to which the table is referring when not using the Standard Browser.

We are aware of this situation and will soon be introducing an enhancement to Class Web that will calculate the valid numbers for these "see" references on-the-fly.  Until that enhancement is introduced, these "see" references in Table KF1 can best be understood by displaying Table KF1 in the Standard browser.  Similar changes will be made in the other KF tables over the course of the next few months.

When using the Enhanced or Hierarchy Browser in ClassWeb, there are many
numbers with the caption:

The Library of Congress discontinued use of this form subdivision in
2007 -- see KF1 19.85 or (other number from the KF1 form division table
for 20 nos. )

We are confused as to what number the table is to be applied.

Can you help us?
