Do you meticulously dot the i's and cross the t's?The idiom 'dot the i's and cross the t's' is generally understood to mean to pay diligent attention to the details of something, to do something very carefully, especially when one is trying to complete a targetted assignment.
Its scope is not limited to the checking of spelling or grammatical errors in a written content. As a matter of fact, with the advent of computers, nobody is required to pay any particular attention to 'dot the i's and cross the t's' as the letters are system generated with all i's duly dotted and all t's duly crossed.
But, the real intention of the idiom remains to be taken care of.
I always feel very ashamed when any unintentional silly mistake remains in my typed content.
