Proofreader’s Marks: An Almost Standard Set
Author: J. M. McCormick
Last Update: September 22, 2009
This table is provided for anyone who has is called upon to edit someone else’s work and for anyone whose work has been edited. It may not be a perfect compilation, nor is it completely standard, but it is fairly close. The reader should be aware that very few people, other than professional editors and proofreaders, actually use any sort of standard system. You should, therefore, expect a lot of variation in what you will see and adapt accordingly.
