Formaldehyde

The dataset on the determination of formaldehyde makes for legible demonstrations because of its small size. I had hoped that it would be small enough that I might have enough foundry type to print it.

Alas, it was still too big. I ran out of 6s, so I swapped one 6 for a 5; in the original dataset, the fifth value of "optden" is 0.626 instead of 0.625.
