Oh, I guess I need to correct myself, you do describe a full windsor; you just have a link to a half windsor video in the first step.

"Obviously I am the expert to look to. "

Good to know you're modest... :/

Oh, and you may want to correct your intro. You say, "This is a detailed explanation about how to tie a tie. This how to covers the most common knot known as the Windsor Knot. " and then you go on to describe hot to tie a HALF Windsor Knot. Two different knots, by far.
