    This has already been covered in another thread.

    Can't find the main thread on it, so I'll post it here. Wanted to give a heads-up that Domonic Brown is one of the prospects rumored in the Halladay deal, and the AP story has his name spelled wrong.

    Is there a font that is used for edit notes these days?

    A number of years back, the ATEX system had a notes font.

    But I don't know of one for the pagination systems. Do writers just put NFP by the word or phrase or do they put a note on top of the story for editors to see.

    Cutline note while awaiting photo from a Tyson fight: Mike Tyson knocks the shit out of so and so. Ended up going to print.
