Just A typo for me, I make a few and usually correct before submitting. This Board has no spell checker so I do it the long way (not that that would have helped here) But you are right I see it all the time, literacy and simple arithmetic is going down the pan big style. Sometimes I wonder how schools are supposed to be improving, when I see my own kids not getting simple errors corrected, I often wonder - I digress

If your using internet explorer - get the Google toolbar plug-in - it has spell check built in.

It can check your whole post for you before hitting the submit button.
