Perhaps I was a little hard, and I certainly make plenty of typos when dashing off a semi-formal email such as this. When publishing a techical paper, however, in a journal or on the Web, I do try and give it a quick proof (preferably by someone else). Such "in your face" spelling errors as the one I barked at indicate that the author did not check the text too carefully, and gives a statistical hint that there may be other, none-obvious errors, perhaps in the grammar, changing the meaning from that intended, or in the mathematical formulation. Or the guy's software.
