Oh of course, and that was the very space I was wrestling with.

In 1st countable spaces, every point p is G_delta.
In fact, if every point of a compact Hausdorff space S,
is G_delta, then S is 1st countable.

Define g:omega_1 -> omega_1 + 1, eta -> eta.
Assume S is compact Hausdorff and f in C(omega_1, S).

Is there some h in C(omega_1 + 1, S) with f = hg?
