By now we all know how Microsoft word automatically inserts a superscripted "th" when appropriate, for example, when typing "187th"
And, by now, we all also know how the same word processing package will create "smart quotes", i.e., angled quotes around quoted material instead of the straight up-and-down apostrophy.
(BTW, has anybody taken a look at Microsoft's stock price recently? You couldn't ask for better advertising than all these news stories extolling the virtues of their software!)
Anyway, potential Democrat dirty-trick players, here's what you should do next time to circumvent some of these tell-tale features from spoiling your attempt to undermine the American Electorate.
You can turn off both feaures from the AutoCorrect Options menu item. After you have opened Word, but before you begin typing:
Click on Tools / AutoCorrect Options, and then click on the 'AutoFormat As You Type' tab. Uncheck the first two options like so:
It's probably be smart to turn off all of the AutoFormat features, since they are sure-fire indications that you are using a word processesor in 2004, instead of a typewriting machine in 1972, but hey, that's your call.
If you have forgotten to turn off the auto-superscripting feature, you can still circumvent it in the following way.Go ahead and type what you normally would type, as so:
Next, backspace 3 times:
Then, type forward again and magically, Microsoft will, this time, not automically superscript.
You see, with a little practice, even a dirtly little forger like you can create something that doesn't automatically fail to smell test to anyone not blinded by partisan rage and bitterness.
