When your favourite grammar-checker speaks with forked tongue

I have had to revise the rules on numbers following a little controversy between two French friends over whether it is correct to say on page twenty-one as à la page vingt-et-une, or à la page vingt-et-un. 

The thing is, you can't necessarily trust your friends, even those who are really clever and educated and adamant and stuff, because the rules are a bit ... opaque.

Still, you can always trust your favourite grammar checker website, Le bon patron.
