Interpreting documents is never easy. If you have a complicated document or record, consider having more than one person interpret it. Different people can easily interpret the same thing in slightly different ways and those differences can make all the difference.

And make certain you know something of the background of who gives you advice. Not everyone’s skill levels are the same and a response from an anonymous poster on an email list or a message board may not be all that reliable.
