Tale of Two Proofs

Last updated Oct 17, 2003.

All these rules and we haven't even touched grammar. Well-written and grammatically correct go a long way to gaining trust. This is a bigger issue than typos. I've seen typos on reputable sites like CNN and MSNBC, but they earned their reputation for solid writing and we can forgive the occasional error. So, dodge the blooper police and proofread, profread, proofread. Did I mention proofread? That applies to navigation and graphics. I collect gotchas, mistakes in grammar, spelling, and whatnot (http://www.meryl.net/gotchas).

Proofread, proofread, proofread.
