Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.

I've talked with Harald a little bit about this offline, but I've been too busy with the upcoming SLAC Tutorial to follow up, so it would be great if you could have a look.
Here's what I've understood from Harald:
The question is with the Polyhedra solid.
The Application Developers Guide calls:
rInner Tangent distance to inner surface
rOuter Tangent distance to outer surface
The question is whether these tangents are the distance to the middle of a face or to an edge. The text mentioned above says distance to a face, but the figure seems to show this as the distance to an edge.
Harald measured the distance using HepRApp and it seems to be distance to a face.
Can you clarify which is correct?
