    What a perfect (and perfectly appetizing) illustration of the CSD construction.  What took 'em so long?

          Great visuals Mark.  Thanks for sharing.
           
          After learning your facts, I decided to find out how the goofs at Wikipedia got it wrong.  Remarkably, they got the toppings exactly right.
           
          The best thing there is a link in the footnotes to The Straight Dope.
           
          Q. Why is there no ketchup on a properly made hot dog?
          A. Paul, I know you don't mean to act like an alfalfa-chewing barbarian, but this is like asking why Leonardo didn't paint the Mona Lisa on black velvet. Ketchup is destructive of all that is right and just about a properly assembled hot dog (and we're talking about a pure beef hot dog, not one of those things you could serve with dressing on Thanksgiving)....

            Wikipedia is normally pretty accurate. And if it isn't, you can fix it. It's just not authoritative. It like logical fallacies; using one doesn't prove your conclusion to be right, but they generally can be used as a evidence. Note that what IS extremely useful in Wikipedia if you want to get at the facts are the cross-references, which frequently ARE authoritative (and note that using the fact that a source is authoritative as proof that it is correct is also a logical fallacy; it simply makes it much more likely that it is correct).
             
            So, just because Wikipedia is not authoritative does not mean that one should be surprised when it is right.
