If you want a thorough study of variant spellings you gotta
do it yourself. Too many to do, so sorry. I'd doublecheck me
all along. Ask anyone and they will tell you I screw up a lot,
can't spell, and don't know what I am talking about -- or at
least that is what my email says.
Seriously, I get fatiqued, the eyes go, then the brain soon
after, so doublecheck me someday.
