I've updated early this morning the CALL TEMPER page.

While keeping the names of the European FM-PAC doc (except for Lamour that is actually Rameau), I've made links for each temperament to the available corresponding English Wikipedia page (what means link to the 'official' name in two cases).

I've also added a sentence about the correspondance between some names.

Note that for Rameau, I've linked to the page about the composer, as there is not a page about Rameau temperament.

and if you care about it, Rameau temperament.
also, may I note that the "h major" and "h minor" are german-style music notes.
here's a nice page with infos about it.
obligatory :RNFF:

Thanks for your help, we'll finally have a more coherent Wiki page!

Another remark on Wiki articles: why is the abbreviation for CALL into _ repeated *everywhere* where there is a CALL command/instruction mentioned? It even causes extra columns...! But the abbreviated commands are always the same as the full ones, just CALL replaced by _....

I suggest to just write CALL everywhere, remove the 'abbreviated' columns everywhere and at the wiki article of CALL explain that it can be abbreviated into _.

It is not repeated everywhere, only in the Category page of a BASIC extension and for some specific instructions, linked to a built-in software.

Not everyone will check the 'general' CALL page, that is more interesting for advanced programmers than for beginners in programming or end-users, and besides, the Network BASIC has 3 versions for a big part of its instructions!

I'll just make this book recommendation, as it seems that it could be very useful around here.

I already suggested it but mars did not want. I also think it is enough to say once in the description of CALL or at most put a remark under the table.

What is the most significative expression for them?

"Pure Rhythm" or "Just Intonation"?

"Perfect Rhythm" or "Equal Temperament"?

The article that Wolf pointed out is ofcourse correct.
The default of CALL TEMPER is 0, meaning Pythagorean:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythagorean_tuning
which in this case approaches what we'd call "Just Intonation" in English.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_intonation
Best term under which to 'archive' it would IMO be "Pythagorean".

Something unrelated, but which has been bothering me for a while;
Why are the entries on some pages, such as these:
https://www.msx.org/wiki/Category:Groups/Persons
displayed in yellow? Is this a temporary thing?
I don't know about you, but to me it's very hard to read and pretty much hurts the eyes.
