Does the Word Count functionality in Word 2007 depend on the spell-checker?
We usually use wordpad for exams. We've had a not unreasonable request for a word count function in a particular exam.
I suspect (but am still confirming) that the Word Count functionality depends on the spelling & grammar components, but I may be wrong.
Does anyone know off the top of their head if that's the case?

To answer my own question, no it doesn't depend on the spell-checker.
However, if you use the brute-force disable method (rename .dll and the Proofing folder) it bleats 3-4 times with an "OK" dialogue before giving you a word count.
If you use control IDs to disable the functions, it doesn't bleat and works as intended.
