The Field helps for the TX project for the Surname contradict what the Presentation States.  Field helps say "Check the signature at the bottom of the card for possible help in reading the name. If the spelling of the name differs from the spelling of the name at the top of the card, use the spelling in the signature." and the Presentation says "Examine entire document for spelling of names. If the name is on the document
with two different spellings index both with “or” between them."

Field helps need to be fixed if possible.  Indexers are only reading the field helps.  The presentation should trump the field helps but not alot of new indexers always are taught this.  --ARobertson 20:22, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
