We have received an e-mail from Pat Youmans who has been good enough to offer corrections. Here is an extract from the e-mail "As a chemist I am afraid that I have noticed a couple of errors which you might like to easily amend.

1) The sulphuric acid is shown to go to H+ and SO3 2- which should be SO4 2-
2) The strongest acid mentions antimony pentafluoride and then writes SbF3, which should be SbF5.

Sorry I can't write in superscripts and subscripts with my email."
