Your claim that Sir Tim 
Berners-Lee invented the internet (“Ignorant Brits don’t know great men”, 2 March) is incorrect. Sir Tim invented the world-wide-web!

I could also quibble about your claim that Isaac Newton discovered gravity.

What he discovered was a way of explaining it, albeit his explanation has since been replaced by Einstein’s.
