    We now have spell check. It's to the right of "preview post" for new reply and new thread pages.

    A stormy kestrel landed tilted up on the nose of the spartan turf which beset me from incarnations of quilted basalt overlain with rosy partitions of larded jasper.

    And eye can put the error rite Its rare lea ever wrong.

    Its letter perfect awl the weigh, My chequer tolled me sew.

    A few of us here have spell-checkers in our browsers (IESpell, Safari). It's really unnecessary for us to spell-check twice.

    Hey, whatta ya know! There is a spell checker in Safari! I only started using Safari a few weeks ago, so haven't quite gotten the knack of just what it will do and what features it has. Nifty. Although, all of my spelling mistakes are completely intentional.
    *Moonbear shows creative license to the spelling police.*

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    PS- I just ran the above message through spell check (the one on this site, not Safari) for the fun of it. It picked up "whatta" but not "ya"...hmmm. I taught it my name (it thought that was spelled wrong too), and it also needed to learn "rofl" is okay.

    When someone clicks "learn," does that add the word to the dictionary for everyone, or just for that user? Afterall, all we need is one notoriously bad speller who thinks they aren't to teach it all sorts of bad words to render it useless if it's saving what it learns to a common dictionary. :devil:
