Okay, this made me laugh...

From Lawrence Miles' blog, in a post in which he dissects the second edition of About Time Volume 3 (the edition which he isn't credited as co-writing with Tat Wood...):

Dunno if I've mentioned this before, but: whenever I'm writing a first draft, if I need to leave a space for extra research or an obvious rewrite, I always mark the passage with "xx". Virtually no English words contain these letters in a pair, so it's easy to find the paragraphs that need work using the "search" function. Which was fine... until I had to write about a race called the Exxilons, who live in the City of the Exxilons, on a planet called Exxilon. In story XXX.
