Having multiple languages set within a single big file really does confuse
Word and can prompt the dreaded "too many spelling errors to display"
message that nukes the red squiggly lines and forces you to use the spell
check. If you select all and then choose the language you want, it often
solves this and other problems -- including having the language class show
up in every paragraph when exporting to html.

This happens to me all the time. We have offices in England and Denmark as
well as the office I work at in Maryland. Sometimes a particular document
gets updated a few times, or the template goes back and forth between
offices. Generally it is something where "center" get underlined as should
be "centre" and I figure it out right away and change the language setting.
However one day something happened and my language settings were for Danish.

EVERY word I typed had the red underline beneath it and it freaked me out so took forever to dawn on me that my language setting was Danish. It
was really funny...because everything just kept coming up WRONG! :)

I swear sometimes WORD just does little things like change settings on its
own. WORD also tends to think it knows what I want more than I do. The trick

is to convince WORD who is boss...or at least to convince yourself you are
the boss over WORD. :)
