    Spell Checker

    Are others having problems with the spell checker? Everytime I try to use it - it shuts me down and kicks me offline. :-\

    Just tried it and it work good for me.
    If I misspell a word it underlines it in red.
    I just go back and correct it.
    PS Love your site!

    My spell checker is misbehaving, too, but not to the extent of yours. I had some serious HD problems Saturday which appear to be cleared up save for this item. It used to automatically underline misspelled words, now I have to click several times just to get it to give an oionion.

    It works, but the stupid window is too small. It needsto be maybe half an inch larger. Who set it up that way, and why?

    I don't use it - Firefox has its own spell checker which checks spelling as replies are typed, rather than having to go into a stand-alone spell checker.

    With all the high education around here, you'd think that a spell checker would be an overkill--- BUT-- it is working just fine in AOL----

    Years of education and spelling ability don't necessarily equate - and it's possible some of us have illiterate keyboards.

    I will start copying before I hit the spell checker link, then if everything disappears I will take my copy to Word, check it out and repost -- but what a pain. I have enough trouble trying to come across as being s-m-a-r-t without being tripped up. :-[

    Them of us as is illiterati tends to agree with the good President Jackson:

    "It is a damn poor mind indeed which can't think of at least two ways to spell any word."

    Whether true, I can't say but see:

    Because people don't like to look like dummies.

    I always use a spell checker.
