You can greatly assist our efforts in digitally publishing old homeopathic journals by proofreading the OCR-processed articles and correcting any errors you find. This way the articles will achieve higher quality and you will also learn plenty about good homeopathy! If you'd like to give it a try, please check that you meet the prerequisites for this volunteer job.
The text is from the 19th century magazine, so some words are written differently, for example “dyspnoea” instead of modern “dyspnea” – do not correct these (only if it is truly an error).
The HTML file's code must not be changed in any way, so please use such an editor that will prevent this from happening. (EditPad Lite is very suitable for this purpose.) Word, OpenOffice and similar are a no-no.
To edit the HTML file, open it in a suitable text editor (usually) via File / Open, and make the corrections without touching the HTML tags. HTML tags perform the formatting of the text and they look like this – <p></p> <i> </i>etc. For example <i>some words</i> would make the text display in italics, like this – “some words”. They must not be changed, only the text itself.
Do not rewrite the article, do not insert words (unless UTTERLY necessary), just correct the errors.
