UncleDark is spot on!

"There are gnomes who lurk in texts... And they come out to dance after teh proofreaders are through. Pipers play strange music as the data gnomes caper and reel, tripping over lines, squashing letters. No matter how thorough the proofreader or editor, the gnomes at play leave a trail of typo-footprints, so that there are always af ew misspellings and punctuation errors left. The gnomes do this on purpose, to show the wolrd that they exist. To prove to an ingorant public that the power of editors and proofreaders is limted, lest they dominate the textual world." ~uncledark
