I wasn't using it as a scientific reference and specifically didn't say "reference"! Try reading posts correctly. Besides, in respects of the question the wikipedia article was quite correct and I checked that before posting it.
lame answers - only fools use/accept wikipedia as a scientific ref.
Not that 20 seconds worth of google search couldn't have found the OP's answer - basic response for basic question.
