yes, i know the problem re LITTERAL, which is best left like a proper noun,
but that's no excuse whatsoever for `litteral', which is simply erroneous
in the English language, tho' by you here no doubt carelessness (smile);
as you may know, the word comes from Latin, where it has one `t',
& this is a tiny example why Latin should be learned more widely.
Lynx Change files are a permanent formal record of Lynx activities
& should never knowingly contain bad spellings or grammar.
