WYSI(n)WYG - What You See Is (Not) What You Get

An internet error added more spice to my argument that one must not always trust one's own eyes, as reported in my blog posted on 1 July, A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words - However, Should You Trust It?

FIFA, the international governing body of football (if you insist, soccer), not only couldn't produce competent referees, failed on their website today as well. After Germany defeated Argentina in the quarter-final match (4:0), FIFA erroneously placed Argentina's flag as the team who advanced on its schedule page.

Of course, the mistake was corrected later on, but the evidence remains:

FIFA's Mistake

Sometimes, what you see is NOT what you get, shall we call it WYSInWIG?
