PHOTOMICROGRAPHS VS MICROPHOTOGRAPHS

Dr K.A. Rodgers of Auckland, New Zealand writes: "The observation
in the last issue on 'microphotographs'  vs 'photomicrographs" in
the last issue brought back fond memories.  This was a matter that
had come up frequently in one of my former incarnations.  I published
a lot of such images and learned early on that usage all depended
on editor and publisher's style manual.  It had little to do with
the venerable Webster or any other dictionary, but everything to
do with who was paying for publication. Indeed it was from a US
publishing house that I learned the words of an American arguably
even more famous than Webster: "A foolish consistency is the
hobgoblin of little minds."
