    Davidfl and I had some conversations at the Kafe with some of the guys a few days ago. One of their suggestions was for David to add "spell check" to the site.

    If you install the Google Toolbar to your browser ( I use Firefox, but available for others I presume) you get a spell check option with it that works on this board and anywhere else I presume. It underlines any misspelled or unrecognized words. Right click on the word and a pop up gives you correct spellings and other options same as any other spell checker.

    For Firefox:
    http://www.google.com/tools/firefox/toolbar/FT3/intl/en/index.html?utm_campaign=enGB&utm_source=enGB-ha-apac-sea-google&utm_medium=ha&utm_term=google%20spellcheck&tbbrand=GZAZ

    For IE:

    They say that "It is a boring person who spells a word the same way all the time". I don't really care. Just offering suggestions in response to some requests.

    Or the dyslexic, agnostic insomniac? He'd lie awake every night wondering if there really was a Dog [;)]
