    I've opened the Custom.dic file a few times with Notepad & looked at what was in there, but've never tried editing anything in it.
    Can I edit the file with Notepad to correct misspellings, or delete words, then resave it & will Word2000 still be able to use it--or, is there another way it has to be done?

    Everything you've asked should be possible, yes.

    Just make sure when you close it that it is, in fact, saving it as a text file, and that it's name is still custom.dic, and not custom.dic.txt or something like that....just do a double-check and rename it if it's wrong.
