How is the English Word spell checker? Is there anybody using it?

Thanks, Peter, for the perspective. I've found that the Word spell checker
is just fine for making sure I haven't done something really stupid, where a
word just isn't a word anymore because I left off a letter. But it takes
awhile to get the dictionary customized to where you can really use it, and
no matter what, it isn't a substitute for patiently sitting down and going
through the material a page at a time before sending it to the printer.
