Table 3:

The joint best-fit spectral parameter for the 2-T fit with individually varying metal abundances for the 4 pn spectra. The notation ``$M/M_\odot $'' indicates the ratio between the $\beta $ Cep coronal abundance and the solar photospheric abundance. The notation `` $M/M_{\rm phot}$'' indicates the ratio between the coronal abundance of $\beta $ Cep determined here and the photospheric abundance of $\beta $ Cep determined by Morel et al. (2006). In all cases, the solar photospheric abundances of Grevesse & Sauval (1998) were used. The indicated uncertainties are 90% errors derived from a $\Delta \chi ^2$ analysis. For all heavy elements not explicitly indicated, the abundances are equal to the value for Fe.
