Echinocactus, Mexico[edit]

The references to Echinocactus and Mexico here are odd. Are they nicked from some very old (before 1950 or so) book? As far as I know, no modern sources link Echinopsis and Echinocactus together, and Echinopsis (however you define it) are native only to Paraguay, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Peru, southern Brazil, Uruguyay and (one species) Ecuador. Echinocactus on the other hand, is restricted to Mexico and the USA. Jgrahn 21:43, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

You're right [1], 1889 to be precise. If you know better than this then please edit the article to bring it up to date. Matt 21:35, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

"Strange Underlines"[edit]

[in Dec JöG (talk)]

Thanks for that. I like to add cross references but cos they are underlined in the browser it is so easy to miss em, even after previewing the page and show changes etc. I think part of the value of Wikipedia comes from it's cross-references, sure one can search but to be able just to click through is both fun if you are just browsing and valuable if you need a bit more info (and stops articles becoming near-duplicates).

Hmm I didn't see it there twice. They don't have the best diff engine. Perhaps I am just mistaken but was just trying to link lots of articles together. Glad that it is better now.
