Finally!  I have integrated a spell check solution that I think works really well.

You notice the new spell check button like this:

When you click it the first time, it asks you to download the spell checker.  Click OK and then click Open to download and run the installer.  It's a couple of MBs in size, so dial-up users will have to wait a few minutes while it downloads.

Just accept all the defaults in the installer, and then you're ready to improve your spelling!  (It says you have to close & reopen your browser, but it will still work without doing that.)

Unfortunately, it only works for Microsoft IE users, and not for Macs.  However, since something like 95% of the membership uses IE, I hope the trade off makes sense.

The ieSpell component hooks into your IE browser, so a side benefit is that you can use it with other Web sites as well.

Also, I went ahead and threw and Undo  and Redo  button in there also.

Enjoy!

        I have a spelling checker


        I have a spelling checker.
        It came with my PC.
        It plane lee marks four my revue
        Miss steaks aye can knot see.

        Eye ran this poem threw it.
        Your sure real glad two no.
        Its very polished in its weigh,
        My checker tolled me sew.

        A checker is a blessing.
        It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
        It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
        And aides me when aye rime.

        Each frays comes posed up on my screen
        Eye trussed too bee a joule.
        The checker pours o'er every word
        To cheque sum spelling rule.

        Bee fore a veiling checkers
        Hour spelling mite decline,
        And if we're laks oar have a laps,
        We wood bee maid too wine.

        Butt now bee cause my spelling
        Is checked with such grate flare,
        There are know faults with in my cite,
        Of nun eye am a wear.

        Now spelling does not phase me,
        It does knot bring a tier.
        My pay purrs awl due glad den
        With wrapped words fare as hear.

        To rite with care is quite a feet
        Of witch won should be proud,
        And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
        Sew flaws are knot aloud.

        Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays
        Such soft wear four pea seas,
        And why eye brake in two averse
        Buy righting want too please.

              I wish!  There's not too much out there (of reasonable cost) right now.  I'll keep an eye out however.

                  That's pretty funny, I didn't even notice the "a" missing in grammar!  (Guess I need to use the spell-checker - you too pegleg!)

                    Todd:

                     

                    Thanks... I need all the help I can get.

                     

                    Chief

                    May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your house. May  the Great Spirit bless all who enter there. May your mocassins make happy tracks in many snows. And may the rainbow always touch your shoulder.
