Color Highlighting


Suppose we are working on the text:


Rusticus improbus est alta.


If you want to suggest a fix (but aren't certain about it),   highlight the problem and your comment like so:


Rusticus improbus est alta.

Rusticus improbus est altus.

Shouldn't alta be "altus" since rusticus is masculine?

Oops!  Yes, you're right.


At the top of the page,  please identify your color with your name.  E.g.,
