How do I use the text correction form?
Help with Archive Text Corrections
In the past, many kind souls have offered to proofread, or editorially scan the documents presented at the Archive — some have even sent their corrections on to the e.Librarian. But, there really wasn't a good method for doing this: communicating what a user sees in their browser window is a difficult task when all browser windows are different in size.
The solution is to provide a uniform method of communicating just what needs to be changed, and make it easy to use. We hope we have accomplished this here. Should you notice an error or typo in one of the documents, you can notify us by clicking on the “Make Corrections” link at the top right of each document's page, and then following these four easy steps:
Some notes on the correction process: we strive to present Steiner's material in the same way it was presented in the original publication — typos and all. We may add a clarifying remark at points, but if your correction points to one of these instances, we may or may not add the clarification. We will, however, change any and all errors/typos we have made in bringing the document to the Web.
Another point to remember: there are quite a few German words, even in the English translations. Umlauts may run rampant in a particular text. Be sure you have the correct character set turned on for your browser.
And finally, please remember, no matter how many times you've looked at a piece of text, or how many people have read it, there will always be one (or more) errors that are missed. In fact, when reviewing correction submissions, we often find other things the submitter has missed!
