    [To fivejedjon] right single quotation mark

    Hello fivejedjon,

    4. Rules and Rubbish | Gramorak's Blog
    It should be remembered, however, that ‘can’ refers to capacity or ability to do something; ‘may to permission or sanction.

    Is ‘may correct?

    Sunsunmoon,
    Your tracking down of typos on my blog is useful to me, but I don't really think it's of interest to most other users of this forum.
