I'd suggest going through the pages (the real ones, not things like
the indices or the What's New) of


in some order of your own choosing, making a note of which pages
you've proof read, presumably by copying the URL to a file or some

When you find a problem it would be best to note the internal number
used to identify the composition. This will be the easiest way to
ensure we're talking about the same one. You can find it by looking at
the "(printable version)" link under the composition.

In addition to the obvious sorts of errors there are a couple further
ones that I believe will be common, and are also worth looking out for:

- the underlines may not be right, appearring as a line of dashes
  instead of a proper underline

- the composition may be shifted one space to the right of where it
  should be

- the title of the composition may appear twice

- there may be duplicates of the same composition, possibly presented
  slightly differently; in these cases it would be helpful to know
  both composition IDs, of course

- in spliced where the methods in the notes underneath are itemized,
  the first occurance of a method should be a link to its blueline and
  so on--if it's not, it would be useful to know, as I'm sure some
  have been missed

But please don't limit what you look for to just those. Any errors, or
even just suspected errors, will be most welcome.

in bibliophagy. The great Philadelphia bookdealer A.S.W. Rosenbach deduced
that one reason first editions of _Alice in Wonderland_ were so scarce
was that so many of them had been eaten."     -- Anne Fadiman, _Ex Libris_
