Microsoft Word 2000’s AutoCorrect feature can be a pain at times, but in other instances it can be quite helpful. Take copyrights and trademarks for example. Normally, you would have to go through a couple of menus to insert such symbols in your documents. As long as AutoCorrect is turned on, just typing (c), (r), or ™ in your document should result in a copyright symbol, registered trademark, and trademark symbol being displayed, respectively.
