2018-02-26A macro to fix document templates in which Word won't check spelling

Language and "Do not check spelling or grammar" are style formatting in Word, not per-document settings. This wouldn't be a big issue if it was simple to select everything in a document and set both of the style properties, but Ctrl+A doesn't always work and if you're googling this you know damn well it doesn't.

The links below explain the problem and give the kernel of a solution, although I found it useful to explicitly set the language and (more of an issue) found that errors would prevent looping through some of the styles unless forcibly ignored.
