copy editing no longer exists?
Is it just me, or do books these days have far more typos in them than used to be the case? I even found typos in my penguin copy of The Republic – and how long have they had to sort that out!
Has the production of books become that much cheaper that no one cares about typos anymore? They are often the sort a standard spell checker would detect. Perhaps it's some Microsoft problem…I like the idea of blaming Microsoft. And, I bet these publishing firms don't use open-source software.
