Yes, it would be a good thing to have. Even though I can usually spell, I can not always type it right.

haha. I see Giz. It seems like browsers are slowly adding spellcheckers, e.g. Firefox has built-in one. But I will consider adding one after researching more about its implementation. Thanks.

—-also, if you are using FireFox there is a spell checker included in the newest release!

For longer writing such as when I blog, I use www.blogdesk.org which is good for saving posts and also includes a spell checker.

And then best of all is www.openoffice.org. which gives me graphics, writer and HTML plus much more and also includes a spell checker.

All of these are free downloads and will continue to keep you going problem free, however I still would suggest starting with FireFox; http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/”>www.mozilla.com/en-US/”>http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/

David, I use Safari also and it has a spell checker under the “edit” menu pulldown. At least my version does.

Amen, I feel dumb when I reread a post and notice that I made a stupid errors or omissions. I could always type the post in Word and copy and paste it. I’m a little lazy, though! I’ll have to check out Dick’s link.

Dick, I just now got around to following your link to the IE Spell checker. I downloaded it via CNET. It’s the perfect utility for forums, emails, and blog type entries. If anyone is looking for a free IE spellchecker, this one does the trick. Follow Dick’s link above.
