An end user wants to delete a correctly spelled word in the dictionary that comes with Word 7.0.  How does one do this?  Keep in mind that this is for the prepackaged dictionary not the custom dictionary.

The exact procedure to do it is included in Word 7.0's help files, just do an intuitive search on "dictionnary" to find the corresponding pages...
