Go Blue Squiggles! Mossberg praises contextual spellchecker

Some lovely words about the contextual spellchecker from Walter Mossberg’s review of Office 2007 in today’s Wall Street Journal online.  To quote:

There are other nice additions. In Word, Outlook and PowerPoint, there is now contextual spell checking, which points to a wrong word, even if the spelling is in the dictionary. For example, if you type “their” instead of “they’re,” Office catches the mistake. It really works.

*sniff*  I think I’m going to cry!  He has a lot of mostly positive things to say about Office 2007 in general–well worth a look.
