Since K and U- A are closed disjoint sets, there is, by Urysohn's lemma, a continuous function f: U-+ [0, 1] zero on U- A, and equal 1 on K, so that K ~ {! ~ t} ~A~ G for any t E (0, 1) Note also that T{f ~ t} = T{f > t} almost everywhere on t E (0, 1). Choose B = {! ~ t 0 } for some t 0 E (0, 1) with T{f ~ t 0 } = T{f > t 0 }. Keeping in mind that {f > t 0 } ~ B 0 ~ B, we have T(B) = T(B 0 ) = T( {f > t 0 } ). Moreover, B = B- ~A- E K. implies that BE K. and thus, BE C(T). On the other hand, in view of Lemmas 3 and 4, we have, when Tn ==>cw T for any K in K.
