Proofreading

 It’s good to know I’m not the only one who finds the lack of editorial
excellent a problem.

Like everybody else, I was checking out the
new MSN home page
and I clicked over to the
tour
. And right there as their top headline in the sample web page, it says, “Wierd
items of the future”.

Ahem. It’s spelled w-e-i-r-d.

And on all of the MSN properties, like local
city guides
, you can see MSN’s new motto: “More Useful Everyday”.

Um, another spelling error. That should read “More Useful Every Day”. When used as
a single word, “everyday” is an adjective, not an adverb. Like “An everyday event”.

I’ll stick with My Yahoo,
thanks the same. At least they know how to spell.
