Description jvromans 2003-08-13 18:05:35 UTC
When checking spelling, the spell checker takes a trailing period into account.
E.g. when spell checking "I'm spell checking woord.", "woord." (note the period)
is flagged as unknown.

Confirmed -- WinXPPro/1.1rc2


Note:  This does not appear to be the same issue as 4297.

This is not a bug.  The spell checker is handed the string "woord." independently of 
the other words (i.e. it does not get handed a sentence).   
Since abbreviations must be "spell checked" also, the checker tries the word 
"woord." with and without the ending period (in case it is an abbreviation).  It can only 
find the word "word" as being correctly spelled (there is no correct *abbreviation* 
"word." so it suggests that among other suggestions. 
This correctly happens as designed and expected .... so it is not a bug.  If you would 
like to change this to an enhancement request, I could modify the suggestion 
mechanism to duplciate every suggestion made and add a separate version with a 
period attached to each just in case this word happened to be at the end of a 
sentence and was not an attempted abbreviation. 
So I am changing this to an enhancement request. 
Hope this helps,

Ok here is what I have so far found on RC3 
if you have a mispelled word with a puncuation mark, it will 
indicate the mark as well as teh word. 
If you indivually highlight the word, leaving out the mark the spell 
check will respond with a done and give no attempt at suggestions. 
if you put a space between teh word and highlight it it will now 
work as expected allowing you to select and replace the word with 
the poper spelling.
