I can't resist recounting an old episode from 2012 when my paper
2013,PASA,30,4 "Optical Corrections to the Veron-Cetty and Veron
Quasar Catalogue" was in press. The typographers changed my sentence
"For nine such approximately-sited cases there is only optical
matching available ..."
"For only nine such approximately sited cases is optical matching
I asked in vain to change it back, those typographers published it the
way they wanted it, apparently blissfully unaware that they'd
profoundly changed the meaning of the sentence.
(Also they chopped up the data tables so badly that I reckoned that
anyone who wanted to read the paper would choose to read the arXiv
version anyway, and so not encounter the typographer wording.)
