I have noticed a few people have wished for a spell checker in the posts. The latest "Google tool bar has one built in that will check any web page form you fill in.
Not working for own Google etc

Of course another option is to type it into Word, spell check it and cut and paste.

I'm inherently lazy... Google toolbar spell chacker is live on the toolbar at all times, no need for the extra time involved with cut and paste. Also as you're responding directly to the reply box, you always have the original post at the top for reference.

Hey Blue
"Google toolbar spell chacker is live on the toolbar at all times"

It works well (Whats a "chacker"?).

Unfortunately I don't have administrator access to the system at work and therefore can't install it... It appears I have fallen on my own sword...

Blue, get a copy of Portable Firefox and load it on a USB drive. Then you can load any extension you want. Whole heap of other portable apps available also..

Hi John, that would be a good idea if this place was a little more trusting... The computer I use is accessible by about 20-30 different people on any given day and has never had a red mark against it for abuse. Someone in head office downloaded some naughty stuff and so they've forced the whole company to suffer. Not only are we restricted on what we can download, they have disabled the CD and USB drives. :-((

I don't know about this forum but in others when you copy & paste from M$ Word you paste all sorts of control characters into the forum. Try OpenOffice it does notdo that – download it free from www.openoffice.org

I have the free ieSpell installed. I just right click in my message and the spell check runs. Works on most Internet sites. I just have to remember to use it!
