Subject: [TMG] When did location sentence variables change

Thanks for confirming and reporting my error, Jim, but your
comment about the location sentence variable order sent me
scurrying to my documentation, where I got two different answers.

Your order matches the on-line help of Version 5.09:
Level 1 [LA], [L1] or [ADDRESSEE]
Level 2 [LD], [L2] or [DETAIL], [DETAIL1], [DETAIL2], ... [DETAIL9]
Level 3 [LCI], [L3] or [CITY]
Level 4 [LCN], [L4] or [COUNTY]
Level 5 [LS], [L5] or [STATE]
Level 6 [LCR], [L6] or [COUNTRY]
Level 7 [LZ], [L7] or [ZIP]
Level 8 [LP], [L8] or[PHONE]
Level 9 [LL], [L9] or [LATLONG]
Level 10 [LT], [L10] or [TEMPLE]

However, from the TMG official change log for version 4.0d:
The list of supported sentence variables now includes the following
in addition to those listed at the bottom of pg 267.
[L1] = pLace level 1 (Addressee)*
[L2] = Level 2 (Detail)
[L3] = Level 3 (LatLong/Temple)
[L4] = Level 4 (City)
[L5] = Level 5 (County)
[L6] = Level 6 (State)
[L7] = Level 7 (Country)
[L8] = Level 8 (Postal)*
[L9] = Level 9 (Phone)*
(* these three place elements are only accessible for tags in
the Address group).

I carefully updated my documentation with this information when
this change log came out and never noticed that the meaning for
the numbers have changed in Version 5.

Anyone know when (what version) this change took place?
