I would like sometimes to be able to turn off even the underlining.  I 
do a lot of work using more than one language in the same text.  So far, 
I've not been able to find a way to handle that with the current 
spell-checking function.

I do like the spell-checking function.  I find it a real help, but I 
feel that the underlining is sufficient for me to see my errors... in 
most instances.  I write many documents in English concerning the 
Neapolitan language.  When a page has from 1/3 to 2/3 of all the words 
underlined, with maybe only one or two words that are actually 
misspelled, it doesn't help much.

Is it possible to turn this off but only for certain documents?
