I wouldn't assume that all list members are familiar with Latin, not even
all of the Milton scholars (which I'm not). I was aware of the V as U,
which should be obvious enough from Methodvs either way.

This title wasn't too bad even to one unfamiliar with Latin, but I wanted
to make sure I got it right.

Thanks again,

Jim R
