    Spell checker in 2k2 (Word XP SP 1)

    Folks,

    Is it just me or is the spell checker in Word XP much worse that the previous version ? In particular it seems to have a very poor algorithm for replacement suggestions, especially when working with foreign languages such as French, German or Spanish.

    Anyone else seeing this ? Is it possible to use a third party tool in place of the built-in spell checker ?

    Regards

    --alex

    Hi Alex:
    I haven't used Word 2002. However, here is a link for an update to their speller:
    <A target="_blank" HREF="http://office.microsoft.com/Downloads/default.aspx">Office XP SP1 Speller Update: April 25, 2002
    </A>

    Hope this helps.
