The "rule" about not ending a sentence with a preposition has always
been, in fact, a style choice - not a rule of grammar. AFAIK most
modern style guides do not support this "rule." (Same for several
other "rules" we were taught in school.)

I made one minor change concerning whether a sentence should end with a
preposition. In high school, this was a no-no. (OK, this was 60 years
ago.) What is the more modern thought about this?

Samatha: I liked your thoroughness for chapters 0 & 1.
