Worst spelling of the day

A misused hyphen isn’t the worst mistake a writer can make. It’s just the most common mistake made by Yahoo! Style writers. The worst mistake — or should I say, today’s worst spelling mistake — is this:

hommbre sty

You might think that this is a misspelling of hombré, but you would be wrong. It is actually the writer’s pathetic attempt at a hair-coloring style known as ombré.
