Default The perils of spelling checkers

Australian book review for March 2008 has an unfortunate typo:
By an accident of the calendar, the long list for this year's Miles Franklin Award will not be announced on the ideas of March. This would have been fittingly portentous.
The article goes on to mention the complaints that arise each year about 'the terms of Miles Franklin's will and the restriction of the award to those works containing Australian characters, settings or references.' Hence the reference to the Ides of March.
