Help with what -- taking the time to find out? ;-)

As for Larry's problem, it's impossible to know why he can't add "xxx"
without knowing what "xxx" is. But Lester's advice (or the FM message)
should have enabled him to figure it out in a few seconds. My guess
would be that "xxx" contains "Unusual Capitalization" and that option is
selected in Spelling Checker Options.
