    Default tying/typographical error

    t was a typing error.
    It was a typographical error.

    What is the difference between 'typing' and 'typographical error'?

    Many thanks.

    There is no difference at all - unless you want to be very pedantic.

    You could make the following case:
    A typographical error must show up as an error on the page.
    A typing error, such as letting your cat walk across your keyboard, might be fixable before it is printed or sent electronically - that is, before it becomes typographical.
