Re: ARB - restructuring tables from Level to POUR

My own opinion is that it is easier if it is just the list of numbers 
so people can then link in to get detail.  The table itself is not a 
reference but a map to the correct reference, in my opinion.  But we 
are happy to do the update according to group decision.  Please let 
us know what that is.  We have placed the new tables but they are 
empty and will be filled in when we know to do one of the following:

1. Just make the list of numbers with the Level designation and the link
-OR-
2. Include the short phrase

My preference is #1...please comment

Best,
Sharron
