Subject: RE: IMPORTANT--about lost posts-to save them
Thanks, Bill, for bringing the topic up; I have used all three of Joe's scenarios (but never have run foul of Spaw's...yet).

Spaw, there are dictionaries that you can use for nonUS versions of English. I remember some posts of JohninKansas dealing with how to get them and also make sure your keyboard uses the same versions. His comments were useful but, even so, I found out the Word's version of English for Australians came up with US spellings; apparently Micro$oft reckons we're an unacknowledged extra territory of the US. I've found the only way to get correct Oz spelling, using Office, is to use the English UK dictionary as provided. Even so, it affects only some of Office's applications but not the spellings used by the operating system or other applications.

Have fun.

Cheers, Rowan
