More Word Problems...

So the other day i used the word Septagon in a document and got a spellcheck flag for it...???
i've always thought of a seven sided object as a Septagon and was befuddled by this flag on this word...
i looked it up in my MacDictionary and Franklin Electronic Dictionary and Neither had it...!!!

Wikipedia says that The OED recognizes it was Equivalent to a Heptagon.

This sort of thing happens to me all the time.
i'm sure that a word exists and my dictionaries say that it does not exist, and then when i check for it on the Internet, The Internet says that it does Exist...!!!

i'm seriously loosing faith in Dictionaries...!!!
