'The script "VW" or "VW 1200" may appear on the bottom.'
My part (verified 56mm version) only has the text "LEGO", nothing else.

It is quite likely more correct to use a dash instead of a hyphen/minus in item
titles, except it is not easy to type a dash with the standard en-US keyboard
layout.

To keep it easy for text entry and consistent across the catalog, dashes should
be changed to hyphens in all item titles.

compare a dash in title

Titles in the Catalog with words that need an apostrophe, either for a possessive
noun or for a contraction seem to randomly use one of the two types of apostrophe.

The first type is the typewriter apostrophe , it's straight not curly
and is part of ASCII character set and what you get on a PC using EN-US keyboard
layout, other countries and languages may be different....

The second type of apostrophe is the "Right Single Quotation Mark" , which
is part of the Unicode character set. This is hard to type on a PC EN-US keyboard
without the use of autocorrect or 'smart quotes' something AI like.

The main reason this came to my attention is because the straight apostrophe
displays correctly for item names in BrickStock but the curly apostrophe does
not. It seems Brickstock can only display a limited character set, since accented
words are also not shown correctly.

I know Bricklink is not concerned with BrickStock, but Bricklink catalog should
know there is inconsistent use between two apostrophe types.

Some sets were using the small and large image to show differences in packaging,
like this set
 
Set No: 1913  Name: Building Set B, Boat polybag
* 
1913-1 (Inv) Building Set B, Boat polybag
27 Parts, 1989
Sets: Universal Building Set: Basic Model
but now it is not easy to see the default small image for a set. Only by paying
attention I've noticed a few places I can see it, like the image preview
in a top bar pre-search result or the thumbnail image in this post! (just noticed
it...)

Should these images be copied over as an alternate image, or are they of so low
quality, its better to lose them?

Either the sets note should stop referring to look at the small image to see
these differences since that is almost impossible or copy them over as an alternate
image please.

Other sets I know of that are affected

has a note to remove the instructions entry once the poster has been added to
the inventory. Either the note should be removed, or the instructions entry since
the poster has been added long ago. Or I might not understand the note, in which
case discard this request, Thanks.

has the word 'sticker' in
its name implying one sticker only. From the build instructions of the primary
model, it is not obvious if stickers are on both sides. What is true though,
is there are enough stickers to put on both sides of the flag and if you look
at the front cover and the back cover of the instructions you can see both sides
of the flag with stickers on them. If re-naming the part (sticker(s)) is not
favoured, can a note be attached to the part to say, 'it is likely that stickers
are applied to both sides... '

The old inventories admin version of StormChaser didn't know what to do about
a 2cm length of pneumatic hose needed for an inventory, when the catalog only
has 2L/1.6cm or 3L/2.4cm lengths.
https://www.bricklink.com/messageThread.asp?ID=241531
The solution was a note in the inventory.

In the catalog, when I sort the category of Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. by item name,
I find these parts
 
Part No: 5102c45  Name: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D.  45L / 36.0cm
* 
5102c45 Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. 45L / 36.0cm
Parts: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. {Black}
and
 
Part No: 5102c62  Name: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D.  62L / 49.6cm
* 
5102c62 Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. 62L / 49.6cm
Parts: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. {Blue}
are out of order, or is it just me?

Also this part
 
Part No: 5102  Name: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. (Undetermined Length Type)
* 
5102 Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. (Undetermined Length Type)
Parts: Hose, Pneumatic 4mm D. {Blue}
when sorted by item name, its position doesn't seem in alphabetic order (that
i recognize...)

My theory, display name and (hidden) sort name are not in sync....

Whether the colour is actually metallic or pearl is debatable, but the colour
chosen for inventories is pearl, so the image for metallic should be removed.
