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.
