I haven't come across that one, so far. I hope it does not spread.

(This refers to Castor Boy's post about 'infact'. I didn't do a 'quote' because I thought this would appear immediately below, but, as it happened, my message went onto the next page).

And another thing ...

...When people say (or write) what follows is rarely a fact. It's usually an opinion, a hypothesis, a conjecture - anything rather than a fact.

In both cases it was, indeed, an expression of an opinion in conversation. 'In fact' is used in the narrative of the novel, and is spelt correctly when comparing two rooms in a house. So the original errors must have been missed by the proof readers Sad
