I'm not sure why you'd want to search for common words with relative search, that would make it far more difficult than if you were to search for an uncommon word that appears early in the text. This document should help you understand Relative Searching and here are the table making documents. The second one on the list is probably the most useful.

Hex Workshop doesn't allow you to use standard ROM hacking tables. It has something similar but it requires you to input each table value into it's custom editor individually and is generally a pain in the ass. It also doesn't offer any of the ROM hacking specific features (such as relative searching or script dumping) that WindHex does. WindHex is rather ugly compared to Hex Workshop but functionality is clearly more important in a hex editor.
