Save even more steps by using Firefox instead of Explorer. Spell check is included in the browser software.

REW beat me to it. I can't remember whether it is a feature of Firefox or a plug-in. Either way, it works fine. The potentially misspelled words have a red line under them. Right click and options to replace the word appear.

Re: Spell checker

My Google tool bar has a spell check feature, so I try to remember to run my posts thru it.

Firefox built spell check into the latest version. Prior to that you needed a plug-in.

Re: Spell checker

Google shoveled me some tools recently in a Google toolbar. Included is a nifty spell checker. Anyone notice that my notorious spelling has improved

Re: Spell checker

Using a browser-based spell checker or Word is the way to go. The site software supposedly allows a spell check feature, but there are several complications and--believe it or not--secuirty concerns to implementing it. The security concerns are due to bad coding and a glue library that hasn't been kept up to date.

Pasting from Word used to cause problems with quotes and long hyphens showing up as odd characters in the forum, but I did a check recently and those problems seem to be gone now.

Yeah, me too! It showed up on my home toolbar, but not work. Guess I haven't updated the work one.

Don't think so.

If you use Firefox instead of Internet Exploiter as your browser, you'll have a built-in spell checker.

Netscape Navigator 9 also has a built-in spell checker.

Sort of... if you are using Internet Explorer, you can down load a free program called iespell. It will mesh with our software and a little spell check icon will appear in your reply editor. It's a simple spell checker but highly useful.
