    Spell Checking

    I just had the Spell Checker tell me toolbar was misspelled. I seem to get alot of questionable calls from that function, on items it ought to be able to accept or understand are technical or in the vernacular. I recall getting words used in Excel, or something like ISP highlighted as a misspell. I know they can be ignored, but isn't it a little strange that many abbreviations like that are not in this site's dictionary? The search engine issue suggests there might not be room for a more complete compendium of acceptable terms.

    The easiest thing I've found is to type my reply in Word or your preferred word processor then cut and paste. That way I get my grammar checked as well!

    Hope this helps.

    Go to http://www.iespell.com/ and download and install ieSpell. It works great.

    Thanks Big Time for the link. That works fine and is just the ticket for the issue. Will be very helpful at all forums and other sites requiring text entry. Much appreciated. <img src=/S/salute.gif border=0 alt=salute width=15 height=20>
