"Instead of"

Postby Quis ut Deus » Tue Dec 28, 2010 11:07 pm

Salvete amici et amicae!

What is the best way to use "instead of" in Latin, loco or pro?

Example:

Lege hunc librum loco illum.

Lege hunc librum pro illo.

Are both equally acceptable?

Gratias vobis ago et valete!

"loco illius" et "pro illo" eandem vim habent, ut credo // same difference, I believe.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
