    Default The importance of spelling when going online

    Hi everybody,

    A friend sent this article to me and I believe it's worth sharing to see the importance of good spelling in web sites: Spelling mistakes 'cost millions' in lost online sales - BBC News

    Here's a quotation:

    "Spelling is important to the credibility of a website, he says. When there are underlying concerns about fraud and safety, then getting the basics right is essential."

    Very interesting, Estefania. Never thought it this way.

    One question, though.... what does Mr. Duncombe mean when he says "Often these cutting-edge companies depend upon old-fashioned skills". Is he implying that writing properly is an old-fashioned skill?
