bubblyrat - yes it does mean slighted; see Slicht for some examples.

Lighter - thanks to digitisation it didn't take long to search through djvu files of PMOT for Scotch and copy and paste the appropriate passages. (I do have an proper edition of PMOT, but going through by hand and copying would have been a major task! Though for reading end to end I prefer hard copy over the digital version; maybe that'll change when I get an ebook reader rather than using the computer!). As an aside, I prefer djvu files over pdf for large documents; they load so much faster and provide searchable text along with the page images (though the text may have some errors in from the OCR they do).
