  This was a matter of me leaving out a hyphen. In this specimen in
particular, the first metatarsal is articulated, but not "in-position";
that is, as the authors state, the metatarsal does not appear to be in
natural articulation though it is in contact with the second metatarsal.
The authors then indicate some ambiguity as to orientation of the hallux.
This was what I meant.

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
