    Forum Spellchecker

    At last! Now you can use your MS Office spellchecker in IE5 or above. You need Windows Scripting Host 5.1 or better to be active, and VBS600 runtime files (available in the # 90 zip from my site). Found it by accident because the Lavasoft link to their US site is broken. Since you'd be running script and be on-line at the same time, you should also try Jason Levine's Script Sentry (# 73b).
    (When running this, remember to remove *.xls and *.doc from the protected extensions, or you can't open them by double clicking.)
    There is a link from my site, but for more on Forum Spellchecker try <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/index.html>here </A>

    Hey, not a bad utility/addon. However on my old dinosaur of a machine, it lags when trying to load the MS Word Spell Checker... [rolleyes]

    My favorite universal spell checker is <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.quinion.com/mqa/spell.htm>Spell Checker for Edit Boxes</A>. I've used it for about 4 years now and it is a real gem. Fast, simple, effective and lot's of language dictionaries too.

    But again, thanks for making this one known. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Hi
    Yes, that's a good one for say, Notepad. However, iirc it doesn't work in Win 2k. Might have an updated version...

    Cheers
