    Spell check.

    If anyone decides to download the spell check facility - I recommend using the UK mirror.

    Testing the spell check.

    I don't see the spell check tool. Any idea what is the problem?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Could be a browser issue. I see it works in IE, but not in Firefox.

    Its letter perfect in it's weigh,
    My checker tolled me sew.

    Had to share this:-
    My spell checker on Outlook emails just suggested the word "Lesbian" for "Wesbank" - How this spellchecker got there I have no idea - We probably have several sexually related words for Wesbank but somehow this one did not come to mind.
    Now I'm wondering..............

    Another couple of kinks discovered.

    Sometimes you get an error message when initiating the download - click "Back" on your web browser, refresh the page, then hit the download link again. It works - don't ask me why.

    The other warning is that IE might prevent the download from autostarting - depends on how up to date your IE version is. Watch for a warning bar at the top of the viewing area - click on it and select "download".

    Finally, spell checkers reduce spelling mistakes - they certainly don't eliminate them.

    Now if you'll excuse me I need to go find a lesbian to finance my next car purchase...

    Lesbians aside haw about just dropping words out of everyday life....what about this one recently in the papers -I think it happened in Austrailia - forgive me if i'm wrong...anyway the guys banned the word "errection" from their computers in goverment departments. This was obviously done becuse of the sexual conotations. This caused major hassels in the Engineering works of that city, because when complaints (Relating to Buildings of course) that had this word in them was rejected and consequently caused untold drama.
