The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Imagination Technologies's MIPS group, in the past of other companies such as Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

Human handwritten proofreading marks

http://creativeservices.iu.edu/resources/guide/marks.shtml has a nice collection of human proofreading marks.

Some are irrelevant to pen or touch tablet computers - why mark that a period should inserted, when you can just do it?

But some might be usefully considered for use as commands in a pen driven text editing system

Possibly also for depiction of edits and revisions.

The structure of a sentence is important, for that to understand the meaning you want to emphasize to your writing. Many people do not care to proofread their own work. Some are really don't have concern to the importance of proofreading. Marj of GoProofreading.com reviews.
