Same problem w/ kolmogorov function:

Present description:

"The complementary CDF of the (scaled) two-sided test statistic (Kn*) valid
for large n."

Proposed alternative:

The complement of the scaled 2-sided Kn* CDF for large n

OK?

-- 
Mathematician: noun, someone who disavows certainty when their uncertainty
set is non-empty, even if that set has measure zero.

Hope: noun, that delusive spirit which escaped Pandora's jar and, with her
lies, prevents mankind from committing a general suicide.  (As interpreted
by Robert Graves)
