Tip spam!?  Didn't this just get addressed today?  While we may or may
not agree with your sentiment, *please refrain* from posting political
statements on TheList.

<tip type="Typos in HTML pages" author="Max Schwanekamp">
No matter how good your underlying code is, a lot of typos and spacing
issues can add up to a negative experience for your client/end-user.
Too many typos suggests that your underlying code might also be
slipshod.  For example, I recently saw a control panel interface with a
customer type listing where there were two status types "Free" and
"Payed." Many other misspellings and grammatical errors in the admin
interface really detracted from site owner's respect for the developer
who built the site.

Since developers are often slightly less polished when it comes to human
language grammar, get someone to edit your scripts' output before
letting your client/end-user see it.  Even minor mistakes/typos, when
taken in aggregate, could hurt your business.
