## History

## Locally finite posets?

Does anyone know if Dilworth's Theorem holds for locally finite posets? I'm having a hard time digging up a reference one way or another. (The Peles counterexample is not locally finite.) Vince Vatter (talk) 18:25, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

## Examples?

Seriously, someone went through all the trouble of posting this without posting a single example? Ridiculous. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.49.227.118 (talk) 18:13, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

There are three examples in the article already: the one in the figure, the one involving Boolean lattices, and the one involving divisibility. They are not in a section with a big heading "EXAMPLES" but that doesn't make them non-examples. On the other hand, maybe they could use to be spelled out in more detail. —David Eppstein (talk) 18:57, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
