And yes, I really do think spell-checkers encourage bad spelling. I proofread
a resume for a friend in college who couldn't spell for the life of him.
("expirince" i think was i think how he spelled "experience", etc). He
honestly wasn't concerned about it in the slightest. He used a spell-checker
to clean up the pieces after he was done. Intelligent guy, too.
