Hello all

I'm having major issues with Microsoft word 2004. I'm trying to type using British English not international English, i.e. not using z's where there should be an s. However, Word seems to keep Americanizing them!

I have my dictionary set to English (UK) but it still does it.

NeoOffice seems to cope just fine, it even has an option to check that word as British if it didnt know, so i've tried importing the Neo dictionary into Word but still doesnt work.

Any suggestions where i can find a real British version, i know i could resort to Neo Office and the new version is really quite good but i paid for Microsoft and want to use it! neye:
QUOTE Thanks
