Marcelo Teixeira Silveira from Brazil has created an English translation of his MSX Viewer Appendix. This is a PDF document which explains MSX screen modes in their fullest detail while still being understandable for beginning MSX'ers, it's a valuable document for novice MSX developers!

Interlaced resolutions text to fix:
512 x 412 -> 512 x 424
256 x 412 -> 256 x 424

Fixed the rel.link.
