    Interesting information. I am not sure whether it should be that way, but I see 1. before every fact. Shouldn’t it be 1.-10. ? – Just asking.

    Michal, I certainly didn’t publish it that way, and I can’t do anything to edit it, because for some strange reason I am not seeing it in my list of published articles.
