Anyway, I must now change "must" to "have to" or my readers will make fun of me for not understanding the English language
I certainly wouldn't worry about that, especially in this situation. Whilst it might be technically correct (I'll leave others to verify) I've not consciously ever differentiated "must" and "have to" in the way described. Someone suggests "required to" which I agree is more explicit where the requirement is from an external agency, and implies that despite the requirement it may not be the best course of action.

I despair daily of English people (born and bred) who haven't a clue about the language, even about the phrases they use. When so many people today (even older people, despite this being a recent "innovation") use "You could of done that" and similar, your standard of English appears exemplary, with or without Word's grammar checker. Smile | :) And don't get me started on "damp squids", "tender hooks", "fine tooth-combs" and so on... D'Oh! | :doh: Mad | :mad:
