       I think lime is an old term used in surveying, yet not being a
surveyor I don't know for sure;
          I've never run across it except in older texts - 18th C or
before  ;-)

       Since most people today probably think lime is a green-skinned fruit
          which gave its name to the Royal British Navy's 'Limeys' due to
saving them from the scurvy,
              it's probably not a good choice to use in the LO documents

. Is it really "Lime"? A short search in the web seems to
indicate, that this would be a sort of stone, tree etc. The
mathematical term seems to be "Limit" (though I found "Limes" as
well, so I am not completely sure here, sorry ... :( ). Could
someone explain it to me (and then it would be nice, if – given
that it is an error – this could be fixed in the English text :)
), what is used in English? TIA

I am right here ... :( Should this "Lime" be "Limit" instead? Or is
it rightly used here?
Still confused
