French Mistakes

You may have noticed that I was largely absent yesterday. I wasn't goofing off; I got plowed by a story. It's long and complicated, and I hope I'll have the time and energy to finish it. Anyhow, I had to do a little research for it, and I stumbled across this useful page about mistakes people make with the French language. I was very lucky to hit that one first, because I hadn't known that tidbit about capitalization; I would have made the obvious mistake. I figure other writers might find this page useful too. There's another one mentioned, too, that covers more advanced mistakes.
