I submitted the Wikipedia article, with some modifications, as this is a well referenced article using the Oxford Byzantine books as sources. This is THE source for such things. Unfortunately I do NOT have the $450 or $215 to buy the books. I also used other sources to document what little I contributed. I'm sure I wrote the title wrong too so that will need to be changed. I'm sorry. Mary Ash 00:03, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi Mary, the section on the Emperors of Constantinople should probably be on a catalog subpage and link most of those names. Then maybe have a section of the most important ones, but I don't know anything about who those would be, do you? D. Matt Innis 03:33, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Matt. Do what you think is best. Mary Ash 04:46, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
Nobody expects you to buy these books, Mary. But, of course, the data have to be checked independently by someone who has access to reliable sources.
I agree with Matt: The list of emperors is subpage material. Perhaps of Byzantine emperor? It needs to be formatted and edited. (Is it compiled from the WP list?)
The list of titles could also be a subpage or perhaps a separate page (title?), but in both cases it needs formatting and additional information.
The references need fixing and formatting, some should be transferred to the bibliography subpage.
Since the title section is a (partial) copy of a WP article, this article is not yet "live".
