Microsoft Word 97

Don't Proof Certain Text

Summary: Prevent Word 97 from showing green or red squiggly lines underneath certain blocks of text.

Automatic proofing is nice, but if you are pasting in some computer code, an HTML document, raw data, or other grammar-unfriendly information, you do not need to see green and red lines underneath the information. To remove these lines, highlight the grammar unfriendly sections of text. Select the "Tools" menu, choosing "Language" and then "Set Language€" On the "Language" dialog box that appears, scroll down to the beginning and select "(no proofing"). Click the "OK" to close the dialog box, and the lines will disappear.
