I am delighted to contribute to this volume in honour of Grayham Mizon. This is not just because of his many contributions that are so important for model selection, but also for personal reasons: Grayham was external examiner for my D.Phil. (and hopefully I explain the principle of congruence better now). This research was supported by ESRC grant RES-062-23-0061. Helpful comments and suggestions from David Hendry, Grayham Mizon and two anonymous referees are gratefully acknowledged.

The objective here is to perform model building within the original variable space. This may be extended with transformations of variables, but precludes Choleski-based orthogonalization or principal components.
