Article history

Established this page on May 8, 2007. About ten days ago I started with the Wikipedia article on the Bab and drastically rewrote it to clean up grammar and add content. Then I transferred it to a Citizendium sandbox at my user account and revised further.

I know nothing about this subject, but perhaps it should be called Bab rather than The Bab? John Stephenson 23:37, 12 July 2007 (CDT)

"The Bab" is a title and has "the" in it, even in Arabic and Persian. It means "The Gate." But the article should be alphabetized under "B" not under "T." I don't know how to do that. Robert Stockman 06:49, 13 July 2007 (CDT)
OK; I've done this by adding the name to the category tags, i.e. [[Category: Religion Workgroup|Bab, The]]. John Stephenson 00:46, 14 July 2007 (CDT)
