Is it possible in the custom Dictionary to make it so a particular word or words would automatically show up in Italics?

In .doc file I'm working on there are some words that are used only in Italics to name a particular thing.

Windows 98SE; Word 2000 (SR-1); IE 5.50

No.

The dictionary is for spelling, not formatting. If you want to auto-format certain words, use the autotext feature.

Try this:

Type "MyWord".
Select the text.
Format it.
Select it again.
Hit Insert-->Autotext-->New.

Or, just use Find/Replace.

Ok, will give it a try.

The italic format will work with any font thats used in Word2000 .doc file then? For example, if text is in "Bookman Old Style" (which I find much easier to read than "Times New Roman") and I decide to put the italicized word in Times Roman, then no matter what other font & size I used, it would always be in Times Roman until I changed it, and rest of text would be in what ever font style I was using, say, Arial or Bookman Old Style, or Courier then?

Hm.... tried "Autotext" and up to a point, it works: problem being if, say i type cloud-like with only the word cloud being wanted italicized, it comes out as cloud-like instead of cloud-like.

And all words after cloud-like are italicized.
