spelling feedback

Post by helen » Thu Mar 22, 2007 12:55 am

Julian - I don't know who controls the spelling on headings etc. but when I went to the Hertford section I saw hygiene misspelled in the heading. Please fix - if it's within your control.
Thanks.

Nor me, even though I am listed as the author of that thread.

Actually, do I have author's rights? If so, please leave the mis-spelling :)

You do have author's rights, and may choose to "edit" the post if you wish.

Normally I correct spelling errors if/when I spot them, but only if I have time. Mainly this is only when a mis-spelling can cause confusion.

So feel free to leave it if you wish!

That would be tantamount to state intervention! Dangerous idea.

He was quite a joker really. According to him:

I think it's good that dictators can retain their sense of humour :)
