Susan:
This kind of mistakes will continue to happen; as time passes, better ways will develop to avoid them, freedom from error will never reach 100 percent.

The over-arching issue is the change to digital, and of course, its implementation must be constantly improved.

Anecdotally, I have three or four shelves filled with dictionaries in eight languages (three dead), and I can't quite remember the last time I consulted any of them.

I haven't lost my love of paper, but in the case of a dictionary, or other reference, the change can only be an improvement.

Thanks, Marc. A lot of people agree with you, I think.
