quarks wrong?

It's been awhile since I read about such things, but isn't a proton made up of two up quarks and one down quark, rather than the 2 down and 1 up as the article currently indicates? David E. Volk 02:59, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

The quark article agrees with you. Peter Jackson 10:53, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
up/down quark problem fixed. David E. Volk 00:01, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
