- In the context of stats/probability articles, it makes more sense to resolve "continous" to continuous probability distribution, rather than continuous function. This basically applies to everything in category:continuous distributions, and possibly to other articles as well.

- That depends on what the word "continous" is referring to in the article. Suppose I write "If the distribution is continuous then the c.d.f. is continuous." The first continuous should point to continuous probability distribution, and the second one to continuous function. Michael Hardy 22:44, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
- Other possilbe links: Continuous signal
Whilst adding Scott continuity to this page I undertook a bit of a rejig:
- Wiktionary link: I replaced the current HTML (with explicit div tags and everything, eww) with the Wiktionary template.
- Grouping: I grouped all links that were variants of "continuous functions" together. I don't know enough about parametric and geometric continuity to group them, so if I've done that wrong please do fix it.
- Ordering: I put "continuous probability distribution" before functions because, although I imagine it's slightly less likely to be what the reader had been looking for, it was threatened with being overshadowed by the list of continuous function articles. The reverse is not true. I'm fairly confident that there are the two most common uses of "continuity", so they should be the first two in the list.
- Link removal: As per WP:Disambiguation I removed links that were not the main article being referred to by a bullet point. I also removed the link to continuity theorem, which is a disambig page for the two entries that followed it, since I felt that was highly unhelpful.
- Pipe removal: As per that article I also removed all the piping (none fell properly into the exceptions specified). This particularly helped with continuous probability distribution, where random variable makes no reference to continuity (by the way continuous random variable is a redirect to continuous probability distribution, so that wouldn't have helped). For two of the "elsewhere" articles this meant that that article title was enough on its own.
