I would remove that auto-correct word from the list like this: Office Button > Excel Options > Proofing > Autocorrect Options and scroll down in the list until you get to "hsa", highlight it, and click delete.

The only way is to install an addon to Internet Explorer that does spell checking, like ieSpell or the one included in IE7Pro for instance. This spell checker will be active when a tab using IETab (and thus IE) is open.

Judging from your image I'd say the best way to deal with that would be to use styles properly. You can set individual styles to be ignored when spell-checking which is very handy for things like source code or random nonsense. This can be found on the "Format" button when editing styles. I'd think that for actual words that appear in your text you would ...

Wingdings being a symbol font, not a language font, is probably not checked by any dictionary ever. Another way ...

Or use CTRL+F6 to move to next misspell and ...
