Spelling error MIDDLESBROUGH

UK versions of Office applications such as Word and
Outlook will show a spelling error when Middlesbrough is
typed in. Spell check comes up with "not in dictionary"
and suggests Middlesborough. This is incorrect.
Middlesbrough is a major industrial town in England,
whereas Middlesborough does not exist as a location in
England. This has causes confusion for years. How come a
researcher didn't come up with this? What will be done to
correct this?

Have you tried moving house to somewhere with the right
spelling.

From time to time, there are closely related spellings
that are just not right. See this article for a method to
edit the dictionary...

You haven't stated your Word version number(the UK "version" is the
same as the US evrsion). This error was corrected a couple of years
ago - I think it was in one of the Word 2002 service packs - and is
certainly OK in the Word 2003 beta. The Office Update site generally
has English speller updates that may be applied to Word 2000 and Word
2002. Of course you have probably done some research to confirm this
:-)....
