"small diesis" is 128/125 - ?

I see an inconsistency in the naming here. AFAIK, the term "small diesis" is generally used for the interval 128/125, not the magic comma. - ?

I don't know, but I see that there seems to be also an inconsistency between de:wp and en:wp

Googling, I get that 128/125 is sometimes called the great diesis, which can also mean 648/625, whereas the magic comma is the small diesis. 128/125 is also sometimes called the minor diesis.

Hmm, calls 128/125 "diesis" or "minor diesis", 648/625 "major diesis" and 3125/3072 "small diesis".

In german ( ), 128/125 is "Diësis" or "kleine Diësis", 648/625 "grosse Diësis" and 3125/3072 "geringe Diësis".

The difference between "minor" and "small" /"klein" and "gering" is quite subtle and easily confused...
