I agree completely with Beverly. We're writers, and language is the most
basic tool of our trade. We can know all there is to know about Word
weirdness and the quirks of Frame, but if we can't write a clear,
grammatically correct sentence, what good is that knowledge? If topics
on this list are to be limited to problems "that wake you up in the
middle of the night," then I'm afraid I'll have very little to
contribute.
