Yes, that's the error I was referring to. I'm sure you're right about the source of the error, but still: The guy selling men's suits shouldn't wear jeans to work.

I did find the inconsistent omission of definite articles to be rather annoying, but I'm not sure I see what you are referring to as "an obvious spelling error".  I do see two odd-looking words, but I think both of them are the result of a wrong-headed attempt to mark trademark names:
     "the version of Windowsr" probably was meant to be "the version of Windows®"
     "In Microsoftr Word" probably was meant to be "In Microsoft® Word"

Or did I miss something else?
