I am puzzled at the way Textedit and other Apps (Apple and otherwise) use the system dictionary. Out of a list of 2600 four letter words that are in the dictionary 225 will consistently be flagged as misspelled. Right clicking on them will produce a list of possible replacements, but if you pull down to "Look up in the Dictionary" sure enough the flagged word is there. Some examples are

agal

alow

fuci

yare

So my question is why (are they doing this)?

and

How are they doing it?
