Not only can you see the errors, but because the bookmarklet sets the text content of the page to editable you can actively correctly the mistakes so when you cut and paste the text the errors are fixed. It’s a handy way to proof a draft sent to you via email or make some corrections to a text you’re copying and pasting.
