Is it possible to disable the automatic spell checker in MS Word 2010 for a single paragraph of a document or just for some parts of the document? I'd like to get rid of the squiggly lines in some parts of a document (e.g. containing extracts of an XML document), because they make reading the document hard.

    Earlier ver like word 2002/ 2003 there is a way to do this like.... select the paragraph (which u want to disable for spell checking) then from Tools menu > click language and set the language (generally English-U.S.). Now un select/ de select the check box "Do not check spelling or grammar" and click OK. Though I don't use 2010 right now, but hopefully and probably the procedure is almost same. On and from 2007 MS introduced ribbon concept.
