Hi Seqfans,

It looks like Hans is right.  Seems like a very strange error.  Hopefully it won't take too long to correct.

Hans and I had previously been discussing off-list if there are generally accepted rules or standards for applying English number names in games or 
sequences.   If so, they ought to be published in OEIS.

For example, is "one thousand one hundred" preferred over "eleven hundred"?? 
Best to eliminate spaces and/or hyphens?  Are these acceptable if specified a priori??
