In putting Berkshire into the Manual of Style, I removed the comment about the cities not being cities in the American sense of the word. I did this because Wikitravel only has "Cities" as a heading - there is no option to use "Towns", for example - so I think it is a given that not all places named under the "Cities" heading are actually cities.
If we need to explain this (I agree that it might be worth mentioning), in my opinion it should be addressed at a higher level, eg. at the England or UK level, otherwise it would need to be said at every single UK page. - Sjc196 05:42, 17 May 2004 (EDT)
Reverted Changes By 18.104.22.168
I've reverted these changes out, as the previously editor obviously misunderstood the reason the para on county boundaries was there. This isn't WikiPedia, and the comments were not an academic discussion on whether Berkshire still exists, and if so with what boundaries. Rather they were an attempt to explain the boundaries of the Wikitravel article entitled Berkshire.
22.214.171.124 - I appreciate the wording is a bit overblown, and you were probably trying to make it more concise. By all means improve the wording, but we still need to explain to the traveller the particular arbitrary definition adopted for Berkshire in the context of this article.
