Useful Tool for Comparing Wikipedia and eBrittanica

Errors in the Encyclopedia Britannica that have been corrected in Wikipedia:
This is some subtle comparative marketing. I wonder what the entry for Wikipedia is in EB? Can anyone tell me in the comments?
“This page catalogs some mistakes and omissions in Encyclopædia Britannica (EB) and shows how they have been corrected in Wikipedia. Some errors have already been corrected in Britannica’s online version. For many reasons, this page should not be taken too seriously as a comparison; it’s just a little bit of fun. It does not mean one is better than the other.”
I can see some uses for this page for research skills training in schools and libraries.
