Its Odd

In Hilchos Megillah (690 :3) it says :
"if the middle of the Megillah is missing words up to half (words) and the Ba'al Kriah read it by heart you were Yotzei".

The Mishna Verura and in Shar Hatzion discusses what If the Megillah were to be missing exactly half the words. 
The Mishna Verura question is only valid if the Megillah has an even amount of words, then can you have the exact amount of words missing as not missing.

 If the number of words in the Megillah is an odd number, then it's impossible to have exactly the same amount of missing words as not missing.

Supposedly according to the computer count the number of words in the Megillah are odd.

 How can we explain the Heilige Chofetz Chaim, for not even taking into consideration the possibility to have an odd 
amount of words in the Megillah? 

We can't say that it was just a Lomdishe theoretical question because of his answer, "that it will be a Machlokes between the Rambam and the Rosh& Ran".

Mori V'Rabi Harav Hagaon Reb  Shlomo Miller Shlita said that some words in the Megillah, if they were misspelled,
does not render the Megillah Pasul. However, a misspelled word is not considered or counted as a correct word and therefore  this will change the Megillah from odd to even number of words. 

It is said in the name of Harav Hagaon R, Y.S. Elyashiv zt"l that it is possible to have an even worded  Megillah if
it was written in a different language other than Loshon Hakodesh (It is a kosher Megillah #690:9)
