I'm sorry, I missed out one *vital* element of my question, I meant to say
change "button 3" with "button 2" in *emacs* only. This would mean that
I can "right-click" on a misspelled word and it shows me a popup list,
and that is where I'm needing the mouse changes, just in spell-checking.

Sorry
Sharon.
