    Nothing to do with homophones. It was a plain old typo!

    I know that an experienced person like you could differ homophones from each other. Flea and flee are homophones nonetheless. I'm just saying that homophones are tricky sometimes. I am sometimes confused between using affect and effect.

    Apologies for misunderstanding.

    "Differ" is intransitive. I think you mean "differentiate".

    No need to apologize!
