    Gillnetter has already answered your question, but I wanted to show you those mistakes.

    It's = it is.
    I don't know it is meaning.
    I don't know its meaning.

    Cheers!

    The confusion over "its" and "it's" is, unfortunately, not such a little mistake! It can totally change the meaning and understanding of a sentence, and is also one of the most common (and annoying) mistakes made even by native English speakers!

    Slight spelling errors might be overlooked on these threads (ie you have said "Butr" instead of "But", but this is clearly a typing error) but some things, and the use of apostrophes would be one of them, will invariably be picked up on and corrected.
