This thread here http://physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=646551 led me to consider the fact that mistaking Lorenz (DEN) for the obviously more famous Lorentz (NED) must be one of the most (if not the most) common mistakes in physics textbooks (electrodynamics, field theory in general, quantum field theory).

You're invited to the wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorenz_gauge_condition for excellent references to discussions of this famous unfairness example.
