December 7, 2007 - "3th" for 3rd (perhaps) or 13th (perhaps)

The typo "3th" is not easy or fun to fix. What is the correction? For the 12 results in OhioLINK, many "3th" were indicated as [sic] in the title. Other results were for conference headings and still others were possible typos in note fields. If you can't fix it now, take heart from Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) who said: Delay is preferable to error.

I am just beginning to see this typo. This web page was first on Google's result from a search that I started by typing "3th" and because I have search suggestions enabled, I was offered "3th or 3rd" which suggests to me this is something people have inquired about before.
