I've got MSWord2007 set to use a Canadian dictionary but it's still accepting American spelling for words (i.e. 'color' instead of 'colour'). I would like it to reject/highlight any spelling that does not conform to Canadian dictionaries, but Word 2007 is very alien to me. Any ideas?

Never mind... Google teaches me things! I found that I had both US and Canadian dictionaries enabled.

For reference, go to the Office Tools folder from Windows' start menu and select 'Microsoft Office Language Settings', you can add/remove dictionaries there.
