    RJ Hedley turned me on to this little free program.  It's a built in spell checker for Internet Explorer that works very well for posting on bulletin boards such as KTOG.

    I installed it the other day and it is a breeze to use.  It works about exacty like MS Word spell checker.  

    After you compose a post, there are 3 easy ways to start the spell checker and run it before you hit the Post button.  Try it, you'll like it.

    You can't beat ieSpell. I've been using it for years. After I compose a post I just right click on the post and select "Check Spelling". It's that simple.

    I DL'd a google search bar a few months ago and it has the Spell Checker as well. Works great and easy to use. Only issue is the thing does not Catch "i" that should be "I". ;)

    If I am reading the comments correctly on that link I need to have a Linux box instead of Windows.

    Hey Brock, you SHOULD be running Linux!
    ;D

    I'm fairly certain I can go to the mozilla.org site and download a module that does spell checking, probably the one referenced above in this thread. But I never bothered. I do my spell checking using the Mozilla email composer. After typing my reply in the YABB form (or similar forms for phpBB or any other forum), I spell check it using the email spell checker that I've already trained to know words like "Kel-Tec", "SU-16", etc. For me, highlighting the text puts it on a clipboard but you may need to use ctrl-C to copy it to your clipboard. Then start a new email message you'll never send. Paste your message in there. I click both mouse buttons simultaneously to paste, but if you did the ctrl-C copy, you'd use the ctrl-V paste. Spell check using the email spell checker. Or, you can keep a word processing document open to use for spell checking messages. After spell checking, do the cut and paste thing to replace the text in your forum message form.

    After a little while, you'll think ahead a bit and start your message in the email composer or word processor, spell check it and then simply paste it into the forum reply form. One less copy and paste that way.

    It sounds tedious, but it's really very quick and easy.

    If I'm in a hurry, I'll do the manual spell check by simply proof reading my message first as a courtesy to any readers. Proof reading also gives me the opportunity to catch grammatical mistakes that are spelled correctly, or clear up any fuzzy thinking or heinously bad writing.
