Help overridong the Spellcheck on the Synopsis Login page

On the Synopsis Logline page i want to enter text for my doc Warriors of the Sun that contains
words not recognized by the SpellCheck, so i can't save the text after repeated tires. How can i enter this text?----
The 2000 year-old Los Voladores (flyers) ritual is performed today by the Totonac Indians of Mexico. Sacred to Quetzalcoatl, the “Feathered Serpent”, whom Mexican Indians identify with Christ, the ritual is a visual representation of pre-Conquest religion, Five Voladores climb a 25 meter pole. On the tip of the pole is a hub, through which four ropes are threaded. The hub represents Ollin, the animating energy of the Sun The pole represents the Tree of Life in the 13th heaven where we are conceived end live as flowers until we descend to be born into this world. On the hub, one Volador offers his heart to the sun, then dances. The other four, tied to ropes, then "fly' head first, as the ropes unwind.

I do not see why this would be a problem. Can you describe exactly what you do and what happens?

I would encourage you to submit the text as a plot summary, for which it has the right length:

However, you may want to give a little more information about how the film treats the subject rather than just describing the ritual.

I just checked this, and the only item that it complains about is pre-Conquest .

There are two possible ways to fix this.

1) If you change this to Pre-Conquest the system will accept it.
2) If you wish to maintain the current capitalization, just check the box beside Warning understood, go ahead anyway.

In either case, after you (Re)Check these updates, the background turns green and the Submit these updates button appears (assuming you have also entered a Byline)

P.S. I saw this presentation (or a very similar one) at HemisFair in San Antonio, Texas back in 1968 and still remember it. Definitely a spectacular presentation.
