Travis, sorry again for the confusion, and I'm glad that you're open to advice. The first thing to remember is that there's a lot more to computer use than the internet. You needn't type directly into boxes on the 'post/edit your own variant' pages - or on any web page. It is far better to type it out offline - either as a text document or in a full word processor, depending on whether space on your computer is at a premium ore you feel the need for spell checking. You can then review it full-screen until you're satisfied with it and, when you are, paste it in section by section. The only things that need watching out for are array diagrams and links to existing pages, which are worth checking through once you've posted as it os very easy to make slight slips that break them. It is even worth keeping the offline document - as edited if necessary - so that you can revise/clarify rules and add new links at your leisure. Detailed comments can also be typed out offline, on a single 'comments' document. This one was, although my previous comment on Extended Chinese directly online as it was part of an emergency correction. Comments you can safely delete from the offline document after a week, or replaced with the next comment on the same page if applicable.
