[1] Because of the large number of small suttas in this chapter the suttas are not linked directly to individual entries in the Index but to the Chapter Head. Individual suttas are still linked-to from there by way of their sutta number.

[2] Dhamma. Woodward: "conditions", Bhk. Bodhi: "things" both reading lowercase "D". Here I have used 'thing', as in "they are a 'thing'" (not as in 'object' but as in 'a couple', 'a pair' 'in a relationship'). The idea is to point to the fact that what is being spoken of here is not a bunch of randomly grouped things. The 'things' have a special relationship with each other that needs to be reflected in the translation whatever the translation ends up being.
I think we have here an indication of a special meaning of "Dhamma." Not "The Teaching" nor, either, just "thing"; but a force of natural law, similar to the "Tao" or "Chi" or "The Force", what I believe is always intended when the Buddha himself speaks of "Dhamma". Early English translations spoke of "The Law" which my guess is came from initial investigations into the meaning that were later quashed. I am using "thing' as indicating phenomena which have an intimate relationship to each other. Have a 'thing' [together, with each other].
In my translation of AN 2.129-139 I have used 'molds' for an identical case. dhammas: cast, die, form, matrix, shape, container, framework, template, pattern, frame; character, nature, temperment, temper disposition; mettle, caliber, kind, sort, variety, stamp, type.
