Actually, Michael, I think we agree---I did state the formal  
definition, but also the convention used where I grew up (the  
northeastern US) and where I live now (Texas) which is the same as  
Herbert's phrasing. I use that phrasing with my own students.  
Although I'm not using the word in its mathematically correct way, it  
seems to make it easier for students when referring the members of an  
ordered pair as the x-coordinate and y-coordinate as an abbreviated  
way of saying the "x member of the coordinate" etc.
