One would hope that technical writers observe conventional English spelling, punctuation, and word choice. This List continually provides counterexamples. Some recently noted are:

it desparately needs
opinion is a mute point
on it's own page
peolple he definitly wanted
their (for there)
your (for you're)
proves your employers point

Of course I never make such mistakes. I thought I had made an error once, but I was wrong. :-)
