How embarrassing... I meant to hit cancel and fix the wording on that first sentence, and instead sent it off to the list.
My apologies! It should have read:
I see the two original statements as equivalent...
I'll blame it on being "Monday" for me... we had yesterday off.

Subject: RE: Tolerance in text
I see that your and your coworker's statements as equivalent, and both indicate a tolerance range. +/- can be considered the same as ± -- it's merely a different way to write it (usually used if you cannot insert the ± symbol). If I were editing your document, I would mark yours to be replaced with the ± symbol (ANSI Alt+0177).
