Subject: RE: BS: The the impotence of of proofreading (Mali)
Part of the problem is Word programs that take over without asking.
I carefully typed out a document that included some Spanish, making sure I got all the accents right, and sent it off. Then I discovered that my computer had changed all the Spanish words to what IT thought were acceptable English alternatives.
PS I saw on ebay a listing for a picture showing a pubic telephone box.
