You can use smart tags (action tags: Data recognized and labeled as a particular type. For example, a person's name or the name of a recent Microsoft Outlook e-mail message recipient is a type of data that can be recognized and labeled with an action tag.) to perform actions in Microsoft Word that you'd normally open other programs to do.
The purple dotted lines beneath text in your document indicate smart tags.
