Fix or Note Errors?

I was wondering how other betas work on their documents. Do you go through a story and automatically fix the little things like adding commas, simple misspellings and other easy fixes? Or do you pretty much note all of the errors and let the author make the changes? I've often found so many little mistakes that it was easier to just fix them, but then some authors do not copy and paste the document I work on. So it makes more sense to point out every single little error. When I'm working in Buzzword I do a lot of the easy fixes and just let the author know because they will export the document right from the Buzzword site to their computer. All other things that are noted are always highlighted for the author. Wondering how others deal with the very small things. Fix or highlight?
