That doesn't contradict Gerrit. The point here is that the transformer 
was designed to work in both modes, therefore not being designed to just 
(or, today, barely...) fulfill its task.

(But, yes, I'm running quite some 120V/60Hz equipment from 240V/50Hz 
mains with a 240V/120V transformer in between, and so far never 
experienced any problems.)
