SYMPTOMS
In Microsoft Word, if you select text thatcontains formatting for two or more languages, and you then clickLanguage on the Tools menu, the Mark Selected Text As box appears to indicate that No Proofing is selected.
CAUSE
The Mark Selected Text As box cannot display more than oneselection at a time. If you select text that containsformatting for two or more languages, the list box is displayed withthe focus at the top (which may make it appear to be selected),however, this effect is not a selection.

If you press the TAB key, the focus shifts to the OK button. If youunintentionally select the No Proofing option by pressing the SPACEBAR and clicking OK, the selected text will be set to NoProofing and will not be checked if you subsequently run the Spelling or Grammar command.
