    I’ve added a result to the list at sequentially compact space which is an analogue of the more well-known one about compact Hausdorff spaces. This also relates to this MO question.

    I reorganized the sections. Have a look to see if you agree.

    Looks fine, thanks.

    I wasn’t sure where to put my little result. After all, I want it when I talk about Froelicher spaces and mapping spaces, but it’s a result on topological spaces so should go somewhere there and be referred to by the other stuff - that’s part of the point of being a wiki and having lots of hyperlinks! But I’m not convinced that it belongs on the sequentially compact page since it isn’t a property just of sequentially compact spaces and isn’t something that someone wanting to know the basics of sequentially compact spaces would really care about. Or at least, if it was interesting, the proof wouldn’t be.

    I guess the point is that sequentially compact space feels more like one of those reference pages in the nLab whilst my little result is something I would scribble in the margin whilst reading about them. I’m tempted to move it to its own page leaving just the statement on the sequentially compact page.

    This would also fit in with something that Todd, I think it was, said about layering the entries in the nLab so that one can select the depth at which one wants to read the material.

    Just some idle thoughts!

    Sure, sounds good. I would add that a first generic step of layering content is to include tables of contents.

    (A subsection is, after all, something in between a page and a hyperlink.)

    Point taken!

    (For some reason, I seem to have forgotten the syntax for tables of contents; but you corrected my first failed attempt before I got round to looking it up and then I decided that a table of contents at G-delta was overkill.)
