Schadenfreude

Call me evil, but I think it's nice to know that even the writers at Publishers Weekly can fall prey to a spellcheck-resistant typo:

"The Supreme Court rejected an appeal form John Steinbeck’s son over who owns the copyright to The Grapes of Wrath and other books."

Hmm, and they still haven't fixed it.

I always do a global search for "form" and "from", and for "then" and "than", because those are my Achilles' heels.

Love it! Bit like finding bindweed in a stunning garden - it gives you a totally warped sense of pleasure. :D
