[HM] My incopmpetence!!!

A few days ago I was searching the web for material relating to the
generalisation of the Jordan Curve Theorem to three and higher dimensions.

I came across a web page which implied that Henri Lebesgue had specifically
generalised the theorem to ***three*** dimensions shortly before Brouwer
generalised it completely.

Unfortunately, but sadly predictably, I did not book mark the web page in
question and despite serious effort i have not been able to revisit it.

So, can any list member please

1) corroborate/repudiate the assertion about Lebesgue

2) direct me back to 'the lost page'

Again I apologise for my incompetence.

Any and all help will be much appreciated.
