    This feature works on ALL forums and Word automatically now. I just noticed it the other day. I think it was an upgrade to Windows that came thru about 2 weeks ago. I had to restart my computer then and I usually just leave it on all the time.

    If you right click on the misspelled word you can pick the correct spelling or in cases where you spelled the word right but the dictionary doesn't know you can add it to the dictionary.

    In some cases it will automatically change the word for you.

    In my case I misspell "the" a lot by transposing letters. Now it corrects for me and I can type a lot faster knowing I don't have to go over everything with a fine tooth comb for errors.

    Now that's progress!

    If everyone could only learn the difference between "lose" and "loose" the world would be a better place.

    Dickgtax, and don't forget barell, chock (for choke), Remmington, Modle 12, and many other nails-on-the-chalkboard words. :)
