Abstract: For any compact Hilbert cube manifold *M* such that , there exists an embedding *g* of *M* into the Hilbert cube *Q* such that is the fixed point set of a semifree periodic homeomorphism of *Q* with period *p*. A counterexample is given to the conjecture that any two proper homotopic period *p* homeomorphisms of a Hilbert cube manifold such that the homeomorphisms revolve trivially about a unique fixed point are equivalent. A counterexample is also given for the case where the fixed point set is empty.
