Hi everyone!

I'm not one to complain, most of you know that, but I'm proofreading a 
submission that has many ... and I do mean many, scanning errors. Many of these 
could have been caught with a simple spell check.

I'm not trying to shirk my responsibilities as a proofreader, but it's taken me 
three hours to read and correct 38 pages, and the corrections are almost all 
scanning errors such as die for the, me for the, thiis for this, thights for 

I've never rejected a book for a scan quality issue, and I hope I never have to 
do so.

There now, I feel better.
