    Begin a page on (n×k)(n \times k)-categories, which are nn-categories internal to kk-categories.

    made more of the keywords hyperlinked, and added more cross-links to/from Related entries (so that there is more of a chance that this entry here is found by readers who don’t know that it exists!):

    Thanks! What is meant by “subsume” in the “Relationships” section?

    Clarified a sentence about the relationship between (1 x 2)- and (2 x 1)-categories.

    Clarified that strictness is used in the DH result, and that fibrancy is also used in some such results. Some more general explanation of this phenomenon would be good to include.

    One of the examples is a 1×1×11 \times 1 \times 1 category being a triple category, but obviously that does not fit into the pattern the page is describing. Should the page instead be about n 1×n 2×n_1 \times n_2 \times \cdots categories?

    If anyone wants to write such a page, we could move the triple-category example to there. But at present it seems sensible to me to keep the current page being about the simple and most-common notion and yet mention one example that suggests how it might be generalized.

    Say explicitly that the triple category case is extending the pattern.
