Default T20 Traveller's Handbook 2002 3rd printing Spectral Classification & Habitable Zones

Hello all,

As usual I was working through another Traveller rule set, MgT 2e, when something in their World and Universe Creator rules seemed out of sorts. I started comparing the MgT rules with CT, MT, TNE, and T20 to see what was not meshing in my head.

While checking out T20's Universe/Worlds Development Step 3 Star Size p. 372 and Step 7 Place Main world, gas giants, and planetoid belts Habitable Zone table pp. 373-374 has me confused about White and Red Dwarfs.

Step 3:
If the star is a white dwarf, you may skip step 4, as the spectral class of the star is automatically W.

If the star is a red dwarf, you may skip step 4, as the spectral class of the star is automatically M.

Step 7 Habitable Zone Table p. 374 appears to indicates that White and Red Dwarfs place have requirements that determine the habitable zones based on spectral class.

Please can anyone spare sometime to clear this up for me?
Tom Rux
