On a related note, here's an interesting test which I heard of last
week: type the words "unable to follow directions" (without the quote
signs) in MS-Word (7.0, for Windows 95), select the phrase with the
mouse, then go to Tools->Thesaurus (or type Shift-F7).  The suggested
synonym is interesting -- may be a hint as to the real origin of the
name Microsoft.
