:-) Of course, the argument is valid only if it breaks the very rule it is
about... :-)

I admit I don't actually use a spellchecker, but in this case, even if I
did, "breaking" would pass unnoticed, because it is spelled right. The
difference to "braking" is semantical...

Btw, the thing was just a typo... ;-)

Best regards, :-)
