BTW, steamers certainly do bring water to the boils, how else would they make the steam in the first place?


Bingo.

Not sure what this is supposed to tell us, other than water freezes at 0C and boils at 100C (32 and 212F respectively). That s at normal, sea level, air pressure. It will boil at a lower temperature as the air pressure lowers (try making a cup of tea on the top of a mountain) and conversely at a higher temperature where the pressure is increased.

What I thought it was telling us is that water boils at 212 degrees, which is how I thought I was agreeing with your quoted statement, thus my use of "Bingo" as per the 4th definition below:
