                ***

I can provide numerous other references on request.

There is reason for maintaining this definition. When preparing art for =
a two-page spread in a case-bound or side stitched publication, gutter =
specifications are provided by the publication that specify how much =
elements that cross over must be offset left and right at the butt line =
to appear continuous after the pages are bound.

Depreciation of this word's specificity should be immediately =
deprecated.
