Subject: RE: BS: The the impotence of of proofreading (Mali)
Noting that LiK cleaned her cookies and posted as guest (without chelspecking) -- to continue with the dictionary, "pubic" (public) was another of about a dozen words expunged from the WP dictionary.

In Word, one just uses the Autoreplace function to automatically replace the most embarrassing typos with the word wanted. Since the "spell check as you type" executes before Autoreplace, even if the spellcheck accepts the word, Autoreplace will replace it with the correct one. This allows you to have the word in the dictionary, but have it not appear in places where you don't want it; but you can "unreplace" with a Ctl-Z if you actually do want the questionable word (spelled correctly).
