Amber wrote about "AlliedSignal" appearing as a typo on a resume. Hmmm,
that could be a tough one. Suggestions:

1) Did it still have the hyphen when you worked there? If so, you could
still use the hyphen, I suppose. (This isn't the best answer.)

2) Repeat AlliedSignal in the body of the resume. When I'm looking at
something, if I see a strange spelling once, I think "Is that a typo?" If I
see it the same way again, I tend to think "Oh, that must be the way it's
spelled." So, find some excuse to repeat the name of the company in that
text block that describes your accomplishments.
