I'm an occasional user of Windows Wordpad. It's pretty basic bot not bad for simple text editing and layout. Its biggest problem has always been the lack of a spelling checker. But apparently, that got changed in Windows 8...

Windows 8 supposedly comes with an inbuilt tool that will auto correct or auto highlight mis-spelled text. You can find the tool by typing autocorrect into your start menu's search bar. It's supposed to work with any text typed into Wordpad but I'm blowed if I can make it work. Setting auto-correct or auto-highlight to ON or OFF makes absolutely no difference AFAICT. Does anyone know how to make it work?
