Mistakes in an earlier publication (Zatsarinny et al. 2004) have been discovered and are corrected. First, in Table 1, some of the DR fitting coefficients are incorrect due to initially undetected human errors in the postprocessing of the atomic data. As a result, we have refitted our archived totals for the entire sequence using up to seven terms in the summation of Eq. (3). We have retabulated in Table 1 only results for those ions that showed significant differences, which occur at lower temperatures, from those of our initial fitting procedure. We emphasize that these few errors were not in the atomic physics calculations, which are accurate for the entire sequence i.e. the adf09 files are unchanged, but rather only in the fitting algorithm
