UPDATE ABBOT-SMITH!!! (was Re: Souter's Lexicon)

While we're talking about smaller lexicons, let me endorse Abbot-Smith's
*Manual Lexicon* as the best of the smaller lexicons, IMNSHO. It's only a
little larger than the little BAG, and contains twice as much information.

Of course it needs to be updated. But from where I sit, the biggest problem
with Abbot-Smith (one that could easily be addressed with new typesetting)
is that it's difficult to read. Some judicious reformatting--using bold
type, etc., to set off the sections of the articles--would make it just
about perfect.
