As a proofreader, that would be a wonderful help.

First, she warns me, the proofreader that there are errors printed in the text. Then, she puts a note in parenthesis next to each printed error for the proofreader that says: this word is really spelled this way in the text. Then, as I proofread the book, I know to leave those words alone when I get to them, and just erase the parenthesized note. Judy s.
