Same batch of letters, but very different definitions...

What's the difference between complied and compiled?

Well, for one, they're two completely different verbs with two completely different meanings. Plus, in one word the fifth and sixth letters are li, respectively; in the other words, its fifth and sixth letters are il, respectively.

Clearly somebody confused these two words...or simply transposed the letters in the word, which resulted in a typo. Either's a pretty silly mistake!

Thanks to MAGGIE, our lovely GOSSIP GODDESS, for sending in this one!
