Anna has just posted to the new project Q&A's that we are not to key these suffixes such as 'M A'

It looks like there is a discrepancy in the Oxford List description. The last sentence has the following: 'Index images should be classified as "Cover page, Section header, etc." form types and should not be keyed.' It looks like the Index images are supposed to be classified as 'Index', not 'Cover Pages', as stated later in the description of 'Index'. -- Corrected -- Wiedwoman 15:07, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
