Does WordPad have a Spell Checker?

by eddie11013 / December 31, 2004 2:02 PM PST

I just received a questionary that I have to fill out, and I don't see a spell checker like my microsoft word processor program. Does WordPad have one? I did a Google search and seemed to noticed that one can be 'added', for a price of course. But I don't want to 'change' someone else's form. Or does adding a spell checker to my computer not have any effect on the return mail. Silly question, but well you know. Don't want to mess up. I did, of course, copy and paste into "my" word program, did a spell check and then fixed the errors. But hopefully there's a better way. Thanks in advance for any help.
