What determines when you use Co mheud or Cia mheud

It's actually just a standardisation thing. According to the Gaelic Orthographic Convention, cia mheud is the spelling that ought to be used. As for why both ways are taught on the course - it was an accident. The course had been released before we noticed :) We have got rid of cò mheud in Tree 2.

it's a free choice - probably habit usually. They are exact equivalents.
