    Right - If it's 'on' take it 'off' and vice-versa. The problem though, is
    reading it off the arc in the first place to determine it: That's where it
    may be easier if it is positive.

    "On the arc OFF, off the arc ON"
    If the error is on the arc Subtract it, if the error is off the arc ADD it.
