    Spell Checker

    Is there a way to turn off spell checker in MS Word 2000? We have to do a lot of latin translations and have to type them up. Please do not tell me to just go and use notepad, or just to ignore the marks. Posts like that really dont help.

    Or create a new style for your latin translations only, and set the language for that style to "none".
    Then all your normal stuff is spell checked, and your special stuff is "as is".

    I use this when putting snippets of code into documentation - marvellous
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
