          Appeal No. 96-1343                                                          
          Application 07/993,225                                                      

          (providing to the user a selection “2 Skip” which, if selected,             
          causes Spell Check for the rest of the document to “ignore” the             
          word in question, i.e., not display the “Not Found” message when            
          subsequent absences of a match between the word and the Spell               
          Check’s dictionaries are detected), and (d) upon detections of              
          subsequent occurrences of said message producing action,                    
          utilizing said user selection to determine if said message is to            
          be provided to said user (depending on whether the user selects             
          “2 Skip” or, for example, “1 Skip once,” utilizing the user’s               
          selection to either display or not display the “Not Found”                  
          message upon subsequent occurrences of the absence of a match               
          between the word and the entries of the Spell Check’s                       
          dictionaries).  In a similar fashion, the components of a general           
          purpose computer programmed to run WordPerfect® Version 4.2 with            
          Spell Check would comprise a system having the various “means”              
          set forth in claim 9.                                                       
               With respect to claims 2 and 10, clearly Spell Check’s step            
          of providing the “2 Skip” selection includes the step of                    
          “displaying” to the user a selection of how the provision of the            
          “Not Found” message is to be terminated.  Hence, Spell Check                
          anticipates these dependent claims as well.
