I do those things all the time-- the computer keyboard is so much faster than a "real" typewriter, manual or electric, where I used to just jam the type-bars, no fun at all. Sometimes dear old Spellchecker comes to the rescue. But Spellchecker has the annoying habit of randomly correcting Kash or other foreign words. The nicest was, in an Indonesian thing I was writing, it kept correcting _hukum_ 'law' to _hokum_.
