    Apostrophe-blindness (Outlook 2000)

    I use Outlook 2000 to compose and send plain text emails. Can anyone tell me why the spell checker, (which should use the same dictionary that Word uses, right?) continuously finds fault with words containing apostrophes?

    "Won't" is highlighted during checking as "won" and "'t" with inappropriate alternatives supplied for each.

    Is expecting such words to be accepted as correctly spelled too much to ask?
    Regards,

    Steve

    I've never seen that one, but now and again it seems to forget a domain name containing a hyphen (thinking it's two separate words) that it remembers most of the time. Maybe that happens when I switch to HTML on those rare occasions where it's justified...
