    I am a doofus to the square, because I do not even know where it is - even though I have stared at the screen for 5 minutes. I have, thus far, spell checked with my Google toolbar.

    It must be an IE thing. I normally surf with Mozilla and don't have it. But when I switch to IE, there it is.

    I found it on my other board a few weeks ago...it allows me to be a little (very little) more articulate.

    Oh, but I don't think spell check will pick up the accidental typing of "STD" instead of "SPD".

    (Yes, this actually showed up a while back, and a couple of us noticed it. Though when I do a search I can't find it...)

    Well if you're a doof for not noticing it then I'm not sure I even want to know what I am:

    Not only did I not ever notice it but it took me awhile to find it even after you pointed it out! rofl

    I just had to post just to see what you meant - when I clicked on the ABC button it asked if I wanted to download iespell - I'd better not - I'm at work and the IT guys might not like it

    Owed to a Spell Chequer

    I halve a spelling chequer
    It came with my pea sea
    It plane lee marques four my revue
    Miss steaks aye ken knot sea


    Eye ran this poem threw it
    Your sure reel glad two no
    It's vary polished in it's weigh
    My chequer tolled me sew


    A chequer is a bless sing
    It freeze yew lodes of thyme
    It helps me awl stiles two reed
    And aides mi when aye rime


    To rite with care is quite a feet
    Of witch won should be proud
    And wee mussed dew the best wee can
    Sew flaws are knot aloud

    And now bee cause my spelling
    is checked with such grate flare
    Their are know faults with in my cite
    Of nun eye am a wear

    Each frays come posed up on my screen
    Eye trussed to be a joule
    The chequer poured o'er every word
    To cheque sum spelling rule

    That's why aye brake in two averse
    My righting wants too pleas
    Sow now ewe sea wye aye dew prays
    Such soft wear for pea seas

    Don't think of it as getting hot flashes. Think of it as your inner child playing with matches

    Hmm, just played with it. It is very simple and doesn't catch grammar or punctuation mistakes. It does appear to catch misuse of capitals.

    Thanks for pointing it out, eagle-eye Snap!
