I completely mist the second part of his question. As others have
stated, correcting the log after the contest is considered cheating.
There is, however, nothing wrong with checking and correcting errors
that are obvious such as changing a zero for an O or visa versa. As
long as you don't use things such as QRZ.com, DX clusters or audio
recordings of the contest, you will be fine.
I once received an email from someone asking me what the number was
that I send him. Obviously this is considered cheating as well.
I certainly hope you enjoyed the contest. I know the contest sponsor
will be happy to receive you log. There more logs that get send in,
