Is there some kind of comment you want to make or discussion you want to start?

for others like me, who don't go full-screen when on the site, you have to, if you want to see the highlight... but the text is so tiny, i can't read it w/o a magnifying glass, to see what's wrong with it...

I couldn't see the right side until I was typing my last response, and scrolled down to see if the typo popped out at me - then the whole thing showed up. But still, I just like to see something besides a graphic so I know what the point is without having to search around for it.

I figured the point was obvious - it's instructions to proofread your work before submitting it to anybody and it's obvious they didn't do it - spellcheck doesn't catch that kind of thing
