This is a transposed version of the long table envisioned by Charles Janet in 1929, with the exceptions of
reverting Helium back to it's normal group 3 position and the repositioning of Hydrogen to follow suit.

Transposition allows the entire table to be presented in full while providing ample room for listing data. It is less
confusing for students who are learning the basics of electron orbital placement. Realignment of the periods for Tm Thulium Xe
