I do even more weird things with my Winword 6 spelling checker, e.g. check

During the first runs I build a list of words I think are correct. You will
not believe what rubbish gathers there when you sort this list and look
through it! Variant hyphenation (remember I write in German), words excluded
from the terminology list, synonyms and lots more.

During final editing, I use the spelling checker to remove such problems.
