Spellcheck Stumbles Here!

In the first in a continuing series, we list errors Microsoft Word's "spellcheck" feature will not catch.

its for it's
led for lead
groan for grown
addition for addiction
atone for a tone
yore for your
sail for sale
mane for man
painting your room "Gobi Desert" when you suspect you should have gone with "Nubby Wool"

Those first eight items can be caught through proofreading. The last one you can just let go. "Gobi Desert" and "Nubby Wool" are pretty much the same color--no regret necessary.
