I recently read a killer book about Syd Barrett, and it was so good I 
decided to scan and OCR it (in Windows, in MSWord).

Spell checking an GB-english document using American-englsih spell 
checker is awful.  Hundreds and hundreds of spelling errors, and grammar 
errors.  I didn't realize how different our languages actually are until 
I ran a spell checker.
