Office XP SP1 Speller Update: April 25, 2002

    Refreshes the dictionary of words referenced by Microsoft Office XP Service Pack 1 (SP1). Some of the updated terminology comes from the following areas:

    • Surnames, street names, and company names.
    • Computer and communications technology terms.
    • Geographical place names and language names.
    • Improved quality of replacement suggestions.

    This update adds additional city names to the English dictionary in Office. The addition of these cities prevents the spelling checker from making potentially sensitive rewrite suggestions for cities ending in "abad" where "X-abad" would suggest "X bad."

Requirements: Office XP Service Pack 1 (SP-1) Update.
