[Buddha-l] In the footsteps of Xuan Zhang

Just re-reading your post again, Stephen.  Are you saying that Xuan Zhang
and Hsuan-tsang are the same person and that Fa Hsien/Faxian is someone else
entirely different?  Sometime ago I read two different references to
'Buddhist Records of Western Countries,' one saying that Fa Hsien was the
author, the other citing Hsuan-tsang, which is why I assumed they were one
and the same person.  Thanks!
