Tom, wouldn't it be more cost-effective (and easier to maintain) to
just invest in a really GOOD online dictionary that everyone could
access? Then you'd all be "singing from the same sheet of music" by
using the same source. Some online dictionaries also allow you to add
your own words.

Just a thought.
