The "Tip" is wrong

In the Tip it says that the above este etc can be used as demonstrative pronouns. This is not quite correct as demonstrative pronouns are éste ,ésta, They have a hyphen above the e . Where as esto is similar in both cases

Hola Steve

That was the rule up to 2010:

este, ese, aquel = demonstrative adjectives

éste, ése, aquél = demonstrative pronouns

But in 2010 the R.A.E (La Real Academia Española) decided that there was no need for a written accent on these and whichever their function is in the sentence they don't take any accent:

Este coche es muy bonito. (adj)

This car is very nice.

A mí me gusta este. (pron)

I like this one. 

Saludos
