The article originally contained a misleading excerpt from MathWorld which stated that algebraic links were fibered and arose from algebraic geometry. Not all algebraic links are fibered (for example, even among rational knots one can find non-fibered examples), and the "algebraic" terminology isn't because of algebraic geometry. Thus, I've modified the stub and removed the reference to MathWorld. --C S (Talk) 08:35, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
