Main Question or Discussion Point

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topological_basis#Weight_and_character

The 4th bullet says that if B is a basis for a top. space T, there is a basis B' that has a cardinality less than the weight of the space, but right before, the weight was defined to be the minimum cardinality of a basis.. :confused:

Well, it says less than or equal, so technically it's still a correct statement, but I agree it should say |B'| = w(X) as far as I can tell.
