The following sentences are discussing how difficult it is to write a book and I am not sure what the red parts mean. Can you please explain?
1. Whilst the overall story and thrust of the book may be acceptable, it will probably have to conform to an in-house style as regards language, spelling and punctuation.
2. More seriously, the integrity of the text may be challenged and this may require radical re-drafing which is usually unpalatable to the author.
