Sorry, that was nonsense. Cot[] and Tan[] are periodically, so they don't
have limits in Infinity.
What I meant are above expressions with a->0°. I checked this, and this
works in both cases (Limit is 1). The n in the second expressions is a
typing error, of course it should be a.

I promise this newsgroup to write a little bit more thoroughly in the future
