    Found this at PBB a while back and it works really well. I'm not sure what browsers it can be used with but "ie" for sure.

    The way it works is in the box we use to type our responses in you can right click when you're done and there will be an extra option called "spell-check". It works exactly like the spell-check found in email.

    Here's the site, the link does not begin a download.

    We have a spell check, it's called Bubba Ray. Unfortunately, I don't utilize myself enough in that function around here, but I feel that being lenient on the offending parties will make the sceneray more pleasurable.

    it's not the spelling that's the problem, it's the use of periods, or lack of them. get a grammar check and many posts will be more legible and a helluva lot easier to understand.

    Using capital letters at the beginning of sentences helps too... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    If I run across a grammar check I'll post that too. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I just did a quick search on Grammar checkers and ran across this analysis...

    </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
    Real humans work in a context, as do our languages. To evaluate the acceptability of any usage or structure, we need to see that construction in a social and linguistic context. The ability to adapt to context is something that most humans do easily, yet that same sensitivity to context requires enormous processing power for a computer.

    It looks like we'll have to police our own grammar... *sigh* /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Eye halve a spelling checker
    It came with my pea sea
    It plainly marcs four my revue
    Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

    Eye strike a key and type a word
    And weight four it two say
    Weather eye am wrong oar write
    It shows me strait a weigh.

    As soon as a mist ache is maid
    It nose bee fore two long
    And eye can put the error rite
    Its rare lea ever wrong.

    Eye have run this poem threw it
    I am shore your pleased two no
    Its letter perfect awl the weigh
    My checker tolled me sew.

    Well, if you would look at the time that I made that post, just before 5:30AM out here on the left coast. I'm not liable for my spelling before 6:00AM Pacific Standard Time. Thank you.
