I was editing a document in MS Word -- a song, in fact -- and I noticed in the last verse the words "Westburn hope." Actually, that's the name of a place in Northumberland, and it's all one word: "Westburnhope." (I don't have the original in front of me, but I wouldn't be surprised to find that the name is actually "Westbournhope" or something.)

I get so tired of Microsoft assuming that they spell better than I do. I spend as much time correcting their corrections as I do cleaning up my own mistakes that their software doesn't catch.
