Sir,
 
I use your service regularly, but with the new scheme I got confused about the following set of errors as they appeared on my screen:
 
Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML parser.

The problem is the placment of the indication where the error occurred :
 
The first error was       the n of n'ont
The second                the first a of faisant
The third                    the b of objet
The fourth                  the r of réserve
 
The real problem was that I used a Microsoft quote ( slanting quote ) in stead of the standard apostrofe. So I would expect the error given at n'ont, l'objet, d'une and d'erreurs.
 
Was it my lack of understanding, or a lack of clarity on your side?
 
Yours truly,
 
Arie Dirk Schenkeveld
