  • How about including a 'spell check' feature in the forums? 

    Perhaps there is one and I just haven't figured out how to enable it --- as it appears now, my text body screen has Bold, Italic, Underline, Undo, Redo, Bullets, Numbered Bullets, HTML Link/Edit, HTML Unlink, HTML Edit Source, HTML Insert Block Code --- but NO Spell Check.  Is this an impossibility???

  • If you use FireFox or SeaMonkey the Mozilla spell-checker already works in these forums.

    David, 

    Good to know.  At my current rate (being very very frustrated with IE8), I only need one or two good reasons to switch web browsers.

    Thanks.

  • Just Bing "spellcheck ie". You would get a list of addons that also work on other web sites.

    Sheng,

    Thanks for the tip.  I can't believe I'd never heard of ie Spell Check.  I downloaded it and plan to give it a try.
