Yes, it was a type. The screen shot showed it correctly though.

I have no idea how it occurred on my machine. When I first entered the
account preferences, the "dictionary" was clicked; however the field
was empty. It was just highlighted "blue"

Again, I have no idea how this happened and I have not been able to
reproduce it either. Perhaps a stray electron clobbered a bit and caused
this phenomenon. In any case, it is corrected now, so I am happy.

Thanks for your help.
