    Had to send a proposal to a book author this morning. I hope she either misses it or finds it to be correct. The word can be located in 5 different places on the document. Oh well.

    Ah. I see now. What a crazy language, huh?

    I'd say not to worry about it too much, Mario. The meaning will be understood.

    >> I'm totally confused by now.
    You're not the only one!
