Avoid the squiggles
Omitting text selections from Word's spell checking process
If you frequently include macro code listings or other chunks of cryptic information in your documents, Word's spell checker is likely to have a field day pointing out unrecognized words.
You can make Word's spell checker skip over code listings and other information that it is likely not to recognize by applying the No Proofing language setting.
- Select the text you would like the spell checker to skip.
- Next, select Tools>Language Set Language from the menu bar.
- In the Mark Selected Text As list box, select the (No Proofing) option and then click OK.

BTW: If you want to spell check Web forms and information boxes you fill out using Internet Explore, look at ieSpell:
"ieSpell is a free Internet Explorer browser extension that spell checks text input boxes on a webpage. It should come in particularly handy for users who do a lot of web-based text entry (e.g. web mails, forums, blogs, diaries).
Even if your web application already includes spell checking functionality, you might still want to install this utility because it is definitely much faster than a server-side solution. Plus you get to store and use your personal word list across all your applications, instead of maintaining separate ones on each application."
