Well, my first comment is "... and your point is?"

Yes, IHBT. IHL. HAND.

Normally I would point out that talking about typos is one of the most boring things anyone can do on a discussion group.

But since I'm in a good mood, I'll point out that many direct marketers believe that occasional typos actually improve response rates. Last week I got junk mail with just the word IMPORTANTE [sic] on the envelope. They almost certainly did this on purpose, because people will think "who the heck are these morons who put ONE word on their envelope and can't even spell it right" and these people are more likely to open the envelope which is the whole point.

"IMPORTANTE" is of course correctly spelled ... in spanish.
