#99 P_InventoryClearing_Acct comment style

Is: The balance on the clearing account should be zero and accounts for the timing difference between invoice receipt and matching.
Should be: Split the sentence after /zero/. Replace /and/ with "It".
Reason: "He should take care of himself and goes to bed in the evening" does not sound like good English to me although I cannot come up with a rule that says it is wrong either.
And there is still something wrong with the meaning. If the intended meaning is that a nonzero balance indicates a timing difference, that fact should rather be expressed verbatim than left to the reader's ingenuity. On the other hand, if a nonzero balance is an abnormal situation that indicates an accounting error, the balance cannot account for anything because it is always zero (hopefully).

    if matching is used it should evenually be zero but may have a balance if manual matching is done or posting of matching records is delayed
