    Try as I might, I cannot get Word to use UK spelling.

    I'm running XP with Word 2003.

    I've changed the dictionary to English UK in Spelling options, but it
    keeps going back to US.

    I've changed Region in Control Panel.. but no luck.


    How can I do this?

    Thanks

    The U.S. spelling is correct.
