    1. Rationale

    Clarify wording regarding water resistant and water and water vapor resistant grades, including a minimum medium weight for both types (now just one of the two) and used of wet strength resin in the medium for both grade types (presently only clearly stated on one of the two). Additionally, replace Figure 4 with the more common V3c grade as an example.
