comment Are all minimal totally separated spaces compact?
Dominic, in your two recent posts (Questions, including this one) you are using your own definition of the 0-dimensional space which drastically contradicts the well established classical topological terminology. You should add a triple X rating so that mathematicians under 18 will not be exposed to it. Other people could go on, they worked on your questions--I couldn't. Regards.

@MathieuBaillif -- very well said! Thank you Mathieu.

comment Snake-like continua and universal images
@DavidWhite -- I misunderstood of what you said. I thought that you were objecting to the gray field, not to what was under the gray field, i.e. that you didn't like the subtitle "D E F I N I T I O N(s)" itself.

comment Snake-like continua and universal images
@GabrielC.Drummond-Cole -- your edit is fine, thank you. Your format is more pleasing to an eye, especially due to the existing standards. My format allows to see the sense faster (granted that you do not feel shocked by its being optically irregular, that you let it be). It's like x++ to a Pascal programmer who is used to x:=x+1.

comment Snake-like continua and universal images
@DominicvanderZypen -- when $\ Y\ $ is snake-wise (etc) then the respective $\ p\ $ exists. Thus it is vital for the question to ask about spaces $\ Y\ $ which are not snake-like continua.

Confused?? There are no special rules about the contents of the gray fields that I know of.

Bjørn, that's why I said just :-)

comment Finite distributive lattices not contained in $\omega^\omega$
Bjørn, I think that you essentially said what Richard said just before you. Anyway, the theorem about representation of distributive lattices as lattices of sets, with their set-theoretic operations, is as classical as possible. The embedding is an instant corollary.

comment Open problems in Euclidean geometry?
Of course. I just wanted the problem to be stated cleanly, without readers stopping over trivial non-essential elements, even if only for a moment.

comment Topological properties for which bijectively related imply homeomorphism
However, indeed, @ToddTrimble's link to Dominic's question leads to the excellent answer there by Jack Porter.

comment Topological properties for which bijectively related imply homeomorphism
It is a wide spread practice on MO to make references to MO where half of the time a standard source would be more instructive. In the given case mentioning for example Bourbaki or Engelking would lead to more info (and more complete) than an MO question. True, it's more convenient to click on MO.
