Ages! Terminology

Dear Support Team,

Kindly ask you to clarify following term, which was found in your good software:Maidenhead
(English language)

In accordance with Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary - it mean
a woman's virginity (http://dictionary.cambridge.org/define. ... &dict=CALD)

In accordance with Oxford English Dictionary - it mean:
• noun archaic 1.a girl’s or woman’s virginity. 2. the hymen.
(Herehttp://www.askoxford.com/concise_oed/maidenhead?view=uk)

In accordance with Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary - it mean:
1 : the quality or state of being a maiden : virginity
2 : hymen
(http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/maidenhead)

I hope - that is not what you mean in this term. Kindly ask you to clarify and also explain, how to use it (if possible with example)
(Reading the manual I found: The Convert button allows you to enter Maidenhead-locators. For more on this see Map (page 16).)
I tried to convert , but it seems does not work.

The term "Maidenhead" in Ages! refers to this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maidenhead_Locator_System

Ages! accepts four and six-digit Maidenhead locators, and will convert those to degrees, minutes and seconds.

Many thanks for explanation!

In my opinion it would be a good idea if you place this link re Maidenhead locators at least to the Manual.
