Page and Location     Action          Correction
-----------------     ------          ----------

86, para 1,           Replace text    If you want Word to fix an
last sentence                         error, regardless of case,
                                      specify a lowercase entry. For
                                      example, "documetn" fixes
                                      "documetn," "Documetn," and
                                      "DOCUMETN." The entry
                                      "Documetn" fixes "Documetn"
                                      and "DOCUMETN," but not
                                      "documetn." The entry
                                      "DOCUMETN" fixes only the
                                      uppercase error.


86, para 2            Replace text    To see how the AutoCorrect
                                      feature works, make sure the
                                      Replace Text As You Type check
                                      box is selected by choosing
                                      AutoCorrect from the Tools
                                      menu. Type teh, press the
                                      SPACEBAR, and then watch Word
                                      replace it with "the."

                                      Word, you can save the

                                      version of Word. If you
                                      haven't changed the template,
                                      you can also save it in
