Good work. More people should run spell checks on their code. It is an easy fix
that improves the overall quality.

Note the uses of "iff", which are corrected to "if", are probable correct in
the sense of "iff = if and only if": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_and_only_if 
However, unless mathematical logicians turn up to object it is fine to change it. :-)
