Stet

Stet is a Latin word (meaning "let it stand") used by proofreaders to instruct the writer to disregard a change the editor had previously marked.

This convention is usually marked by writing and circling the word stet above or beside the unwanted edit and underscoring the selection with dashes or dots.

Stet is also sometimes used as a verb, e.g., "Stet that colon."
