This article incorporates some background on the new hospital from Wikipedia. --SVTCobra 16:07, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Did you copy the info totally from Wikipedia? Our licence is not compatible with Wikipedia's. FellowWikiNewsie 16:37, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
Two sentences are from Wikipedia, unmodified (other than fewer wikilinks). I have seen others (or perhaps you, elsewhere) make that statement about incompatability of the licences. Also, I know that they use GNU-Free and we use CC-BY. That being said, this is from their license: "assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially." I am pretty sure that means that Wikipedia is "free" enough that I can incorporate two sentences into my article. The reason that I mention it at all is because the reader may not find the information about the hospital in any of the sources and might think it is unsourced. --SVTCobra 17:57, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I accept that but I was told that we can't copy from WP, so I thought I would mention it here. FellowWikiNewsie 18:12, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Help with Table[edit]

I would like to put the XDR-TB patient's itinerary in a table. However, I do not know how and unfortunately today will not be the day that I learn. If anyone can help with this, I'd appreciate it. The text is in the article, but you can also find the info organized here [1]. Thanks. --SVTCobra 15:54, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Thank you very much Doldrums! --SVTCobra 16:35, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
