      I am a little confused by this. Are you referring to the same Medical
      Dictionary or a one that can be added. WinWord, AmiPro and Lotus
      WordPro, all use the CorrectSpell dictionaries. I had thought
      WordPerfect used a different type.

      I also had thought the AmiPro and WordPro used versions that were not
      compatible (hyphenation was included in the WordPro dictionaries, while
      it is in a separate file for AmiPro). On my systems AmiPro (Win3x and
      OS/2) and OutLook98 (Win9x) use Eng9203 dictionary (LotusME1.DIC and
      MSSP2__EA.LEX), while Word Pro 97 (Win9x) uses the Eng9301 dictionary
