Dell's Hoilday Frenzy Spell

My spelling is Wobbly. It's good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places. --- A. A. Milne
I've heard of a "holiday" but a "hoilday"? There must really be a frenzy at dell.ca :)
When our spelling is perfect, it's invisible. But when it's flawed, it prompts strong negative associations. --- Marilyn vos Savant
Nobody's perfect, you say? True, that's why there's spell checking and proof reading.
I don't see any use in having a uniform and arbitrary way of spelling words. We might as well make all clothes alike and cook all dishes alike. Sameness is tiresome; variety is pleasing. --- Mark Twain
