Re: What to look for in a technical editor
An editor encounters an ungrammatical and therefore ambiguous and therefore logically meaningless string of words (not technically a sentence). The editor moves a comma, rendering the string of words into a well-formed sentence that has an unambigous meaning. This, somehow, causes text that was formerly technically correct to become technically incorrect. Therefore, Bill and you conclude, the reader is better served by the unedited text.
Am I missing something?
