Spell checking inside protected form fields

Has there been any progress in Word 2007 to allow spell checking within a locked form field? We're still using legacy forms, not XML.

If Microsoft refers to anything as 'legacy', you can take it that they have no intention of enhancing it.

I phrased my question badly. I meant, in Office 2007 is there a way to spell check within a form field. Looks like I can do it if I convert the template from the legacy forms to the new XML forms.

The form needs to be converted to XML.

It can be done with VBA, by turning off the protection before checking. I think that someone (perhaps myself) has posted the code here, but I can't rememember at the momen. I'll see if I can find it.
