Talk:Soundex

While fixing a couple of minor issues on this page, I noticed a couple of images that were in the text of the first paragraph but not displayed as pics. I found the image filenames and where the images are supposed to be linked to. I wish I could fix it myself but I don't know how. I apologize that I know html but not xml.

Farther down, a hotlink to the National Archives is a dead link. I believe the correct link is to an image of a soundex card. When I looked at the link following this paragraph, and clicked on "Charts and Forms", there are no soundex cards on that page. Mayhap search engines and search databases are eliminating the need for using soundex. For that reason NARA eliminated the card.

I have repaired the display of the missing three images. The repair is not optimal, but there is a bug in the system.
