Contextual spelling in the Office 2007

I just read this: Contextual spelling in the 2007 Microsoft Office system

I have been wondering what this was in Word 2007 and Outlook, and it has saved me a couple of times. I just wondered what the blue line was instead of the red or green line. Pretty much it will underline when you have contextual misspellings like “He bought a pear of shoes”…and since I am using Word 2007 to blog this I actually see the blue underline this is SOOO cool.

Check it out yourself! If you find bugs please post them here and I will post them to the team

    Here's a bug:

    This is what I typed : "The life expectancy at birth is generally very good with no deaths in infants or young persons occurring in the last two years."

    Word has blue-squiggled "persons" and wants me to change it to : "person's "….! Inability to recognise and use apostrophes properly seems to be a worsening societal disease, but one wouldn't expect this of Word. I wonder if teenagers have taken over the editing of Word's reference files.
