Implemented a spell-checker didn't we?

    That's what it looks like, here, psikology. See it did it, a red line went under the word. Look, this is even better: psychology. Wow, I typed in psi then chology and it automatically corrected the spelling for me.

    This is outstanding in my opinion and adds a nice level of sophistication to PF. Thank you.

    Hi jackmell,

    I'm afraid we can't take credit for this. Most likely you've just upgraded your web browser. New versions of FF/Chrome have a "form" spell check now :)

    Ok. Still, spell-checking is a very nice addition to the GUI of PF regardless of how or where it's implemented. It's just classy to write well.

    Jobrag, it was originally written in 1992, by Professor Jerrold H. Zar and was entitled "Candidate for a Pullet Surprise".
