I would like to suggest using the GF(q) notation in the article, as it's easy to write GF(pn), but the equivalent with Fq notation cannot be written very satisfactarily in HTML (witness the penultimate paragraph of the article). Would anyone object strongly if I changed the article to use GF(q) notation throughout? --Zundark, 2001 Dec 10

Having written that, I see that Fpm does display correctly in Netscape. But in IE4 it looks the same as Fpm, which is not good. --Zundark, 2001 Dec 10

In IE 5.5, it displays ok but looks somewhat crappy. It seems to be safer to use the GF notation. --AxelBoldt
