I'm not an astrophysicist, so for me it's not obvious that White Stars are de facto Giants. :D

As for the 'hiding': I've made a screen

It looks the same in Foxit 3.x, 4.0 and Adobe Reader 9.2, and even printed.

Some other tables look alike.

Oooh ok. I see what you are talking about now.

It looks like there are three spots where the link overlaps with the text or boxes around it. I looked at the first couple and they seemed fine to me, but I just needed to dig further.

I've added it to our list of fixes to work on.

Hello.

I have found a discrepance.

L1 states "Permanent indigenous populations are always at least 'Small' or larger...".
But in Y2.01 the population size for Pre-Ind is divided by 4 with a minimum of 150.
Referring to table L1.01a a size of 150 would only be a 'Settlement'.

Maybe the minimum size for Pre-Ind should be 181 PU?

On the contrary a Pre-Ind population can not be bigger than 'Small' [L2], but the maximum PU for them, according to Y2.01, is 531.5 PU, which is a 'Medium' population.

I believe that L1 is referring to HEL populations, not LEL populations.

As for 531.5 PU, that is so very close to a small, I believe it was left "as is".

In P_Communications.pdf the headline states 'GALACTIC STARFIRE - ELITE'.

All other pdf are correct.

Is this intended?

Hello.

I have another "table below/above" error:

In L4.02.2 "The table below lists where new FTs come from (when growing) and where FTs go to (when shrinking)."

In fact, the mentioned table is on top of the page and therefore technically 'above' this paragraph. As there is another table directly above this paragraph (which belongs to the preceding paragraph) it would be best to refer the table with its number, like:
"Table 'L4.02 CFN Capacity Pools' lists where new FTs come from (when growing) and where FTs go to (when shrinking)."

Hello again.

Found another one:

In table "W5.03.1 Star Size" there is a double entry for "Orange".

And another one:

Table "D5.02 Detection Category" has a footnote marker on both column headers "Short" and "Scan" ("a", "b" respectively), but in the footnotes are no associated entrys. Obviously the existing notes are just missing the related characters.
