  Collectors of the 90's Hardback series,

  If anyone is collecting the hardback series from 1992-present I would like your help.  I have a large number of these in my collection and have them in my database.  I used to simply list them as style: 90's hardback
            format: 90's hardback
       subformat: 90's hardback

  I treat them as one big collection that is separate from the previous regular, giant and 80's faux sets.  But I realize that there may be some collectors who treat the two sizes as coninuations of regulars from 1939-1970 - 80's Faux and then 90's Hardback and similar with the giant size.  So I have altered the database structure for the format and subformat of these to:
              style: 90's hardback           and            style: 90's hardback
           format: 90's HB Regular                        format: 90's HB Giant
      subformat: 90's HB Regular                     subformat: 90's HB Giant

  [Note the "subformat" 's are redundant here because there isn't enough variation in 90's Hardbacks to require such classification.]

  The inside of jackets for these eventually listed titles.  But the jacket lists do not ditinguish between regular and giant formats in their bindings.  I have determined most titles' actual size but I need help with the following;
