    Dictionary

    Okay, I have question for everyone! Does anyone know what dictionary the spell check is based on? You know, like websters, or American heritage?
    I doubt that Microsoft would take it upon themselves to create their own dictionary - then again - it is Microsoft. I'm curious, because there are several words that I have found that the dictionary doesn't recognize that are generally accepted as correct words in some dictionaries and not in others.
    For example, misspelt is accepted by the American heritage dictionary, but not websters. (FYI Word doesn't recognize misspelt, but SpellChecker.net does)
