To Spell check or not to spell check....

Seems reliance in M$ Word as a grammar/spell checker has some drawbacks.

Not writing all that much and having a less than perfect track record with spelling in general, I do use the spell checker when ever possible.

I use spell check alot also. The problem that I find is that you still need to read it carefully youself. A word can be spelled corectly and still not be the word that you want. The spell checker doesn't always offer you the word that you really wanted, so you have to retype!

dukestree, I like your new 'tar'
