    I'm yanking your chain again although it's still a good idea to learn how to make a Public Input.

    Technically, stranded conductors are cables and solid conductors are not. See Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, 11th edition definition of cable. (Definition 1 as opposed to 3). Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, 11th edition, is NFPA's "official" dictionary when words are not defined within the context of an NFPA standard or standards. Fortunately, Merriam-Webster's online edition uses identical definitions.

    You might suggest that the first sentence of Subsection 501.15(D)(1) be revised to read, "Multiconductor cables shall be sealed with sealing fittings that comply with 501.15(C) at all terminations."
