    She had so throroughly examined and corrected every document that it was as if she had even added the final dot (.) to every uncompleted 'i' and the cross-bar (-) to every unfinished (uncrossed) 't'!

    Pons-Collins:
    to dot one's i's and cross one's t's - (fig) peinlich genau /or/ penibel sein

    Oxford-Duden;
    dot the i's and cross the t's - (fig.) peinlich genau sein

    NOAD:
    dot the i's and cross the t's - [informal] ensure that all details are correct.
    Kommentar
    This example is actually an overlong paraphrase of a much shorter idiom, namely, 'to dot ... I's and cross ... T's.' It can be used in either a positive or a negative sense.

    It can be expressed in several forms: 'to dot one's I's,' 'to dot the I's,' 'to dot all the I's,' 'to dot every I,' etc.

    Technically, if you use lowercase for the letters I and T, you should italicize them, otherwise use uppercase. But sans-serif fonts like LEO's Arial make capital I look like small L.
