The chart on the Sheldon Brown site has been there forever. Tires and rims today are different than back then. The chart was also just a guideline for when you lacked specific recommendations. The HED site gives you a specific recommendation.

Sheldon's chart is still useful, but remember it has to be very conservative because it doesn't account for variables of rim type, variable of tire bead type, etc.
