I open up another window with a blank word document, type in the word you are not sure of and spell check it there.

Hope that helps....:ok:

I think it should be the role of the Moderators. When you think about it, they just sit there all day reading this stuff, why can't they do it?

You'd best keep looking over yer shoulder. Flaps is on the way ----- be afraid!!!

I halve a spelling checker,
It came with my pea see.
It plainly marks four my revue
Mistakes I dew 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 aweigh.

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

I've scent this massage threw it,
And I'm shore your pleased too no
Its letter prefect in every weigh;
My checker tolled me sew.

Sometime back BRL provided a spell check to download on the private flyers forum.
I have used it ever since, problem is I cannot remember which thread he did it on , perhaps you may like to PM him or if he reads this maybe he could post the link.

Use ieSpell.

ieSpell is a free Internet Explorer browser extension that spell checks text input boxes on a webpage.

Subject and verb always has to agree.
Do not use a foreign term when there is an adequate quid pro quo.
It behoves the writer to avoid archaic expressions.
Do not use hyperbole; not one writer in a million can use it effectively.
Avoid clichés like the plague.
Mixed metaphors are a pain in the neck and should be thrown out the window.
Placing a comma between subject and predicate, is not correct.
Parenthetical words however must be placed in commas.
Consult a dictionary frequently to avoid mispelling.
Don’t repeat yourself or say what you have said before.
Remember to never split an infinitive.
A passive voice should not be used.
Use the apostrophe in it’s proper place and omit it when its not needed.
Don’t use no double negatives.
Proof read carefully to see if you have any words out.
Use words correctly, irregardless of how others use them.
Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do.
Avoid colloquial stuff.
No sentence fragments.
Remember to finish what

I find spell checkers to be of very limited usefulness. Bo Nalls' post is a classic example and even if the little poem is hilarious, it is certainly true.

If you have spelled a word correctly, the checker will let it through regardless of whether it is the right word or not and I just don't see ... or sea ... any point in that!
