All fixed.

No, for mysterious reasons of collective nouns, conjoined words, and 
pluralization in English. ;)  (Waves hands in a hypnotic way....) Trust 
a native speaker on this one.

Added a brief note in the Change Log section.  The actual explanation is 
throughout the body of the specification.  In short, I prototyped the 
specification in JS, did some scripting tests using past projects of my 
own, and found that I needed a way to get the number of elements.  Et voila.

Done.  Meant to do that earlier and forgot.  Thanks for the reminder.
