Reforming Sic

The signal [sic] serves a useful purpose when you're quoting something and it has an error, so you want to signal the error.

My problem is the lack of precision with [sic]. Sometimes I have trouble figuring out what the person is referring to, is it the spelling or some less obvious grammatical error?

Therefore, I propose that we change the [sic] signal to something more HTML like such as:

[sic] errror [/sic].
