Well, I'm kind of with skipvia. I used to love that Word fixed these things for me, because I was *always* typing "teh" instead of "the." However, at work I had to turn off the auto-correct feature, and now I've gotten good at spotting mistakes like this... so... it's less important to me. Besides, now I always type "hte" instead. *shakes fist at self*
With regard to my love/hate relationship with Microsoft Word, this is an example of the "love" part. I can type "teh" and Word changes it to "the" for me. Same with "studnet" and "jsut." It has made me a better speller but a poorer typist.
