[Coco] Rainbow Digitization: Year one done

Might be good to incorporate error corrections in the final phase once the
whole issue is done. Would be a good control point for the correction.
Also, it should remain true to the original as seen in the mags (except
corrections incorporated) so wouldn't correct any grammar. Besides, those
doing the 2nd check may just change it back the way it is written.
Since Tim is heading it up and doing final collation, would be good to
follow his thoughts on this.

I would suggest that errors be corrected but placed in square brackets
beside or below the original. Something like this:
10 GOTO 23
[10 GOTO 20]
Dr. Marty Godman [Goodman] wrote this program...
I suggest square brackets because they are rarely used for anything else.
This would preserve the original text yet allow someone to still find an
error, especially in a typed in listing. Wouldn't have to look in 2-3 later
issues to find a correction in a listing either.

My mindset on these types of things: Only if it improved searchability.
So if a person's name (or product) is mispelled I would correct that.
Otherwise I'm not as concerened.
