Subject:        Mote and Moth

I haven't done my homework for this one, here at the beginning of the
term, but I have noticed that recent editions of Midsummer Night's Dream
differ in representing the name of one of Bottom's attendants.  Should
it be Mote or Moth, and what is the textual evidence that has caused the
split?
