I was going to answer Gail but thought I'd better read more of my mail in case someone else did, and you did, Tracy. smile I'd just like to add that I think you can trust your instincts, Gail; they seem to be correct, from what you're asked. But Tracy, you are so correct. I suspect in this case the omission of the second "l" in call is a scanno, but the apostrophe after Bros. in the previous book, Duke, apparently was an error in the book itself, according to Gary who has it. I've validated some books, too, that have grammatical as well as punctuation errors in the print books themselves, and they really annoy me, but as you say we can't change them. But they do make it more difficult to read, especially when the sentences are long. I validated an excellently scanned The World at Arms, and I had to read some of the sentences a couple of times to get the meaning because of the length and poor punctuation--and for some unknown reason, there wasn't even consistency! Sometimes dates were set off by commas and sometimes not, and not always where they should be--and there were a lot of dates n the book.
