Spell Checker

I have installed a new spell check which utilises IESpell (http://www.iespell.com).

It does only work with Internet Explorer derived browsers and is installed as an ActiveX Control. You will be prompted to load it when you next visit the site.

Now, when you post a new topic / reply / edit a reply, you should see a button like this -

Couldn't resist this one. Sorry:-

Eye have a spelling chequer,
It came with my pea see.
It plane lea marques, four my revue,
Miss steaks eye can knot sea.

Eye strike a quay or right a word
And weight four it too say
Weather eye am wrong oar write -
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee for two late.
Then eye can put the error rite.
It's relay relay grate!

A checker is a bless sing
It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
And aides me when aye rime.

To rite with care is quite a feet,
Of which won should be proud.
And wee mussed dew the best we can,
Sew floors are knot aloud.

And now bee cause my spelling,
Is checked with such grate flare,
There are know faults with in my cite,
Of none eye am a wear.

Each frays come posed up on my screen,
Eye trussed to bee a joule.
The checker poured o’er every word,
To cheque sum spelling rule.

That’s why aye brake in two averse -
My righting once too pleas.
Sew now ewe sea why aye dew prays
Such soft wear for pea seas.

I've run this poem threw it,
I'm shore yaw pleased two no.
It's spelt quite rite in every weigh.
My chequer tolled me sew.

So I see that for those of us who use Mozilla Firefox, the old button still works. Will this not cause confusion to others who do not use an Explorer based browser?

Wonderful!!! The potential confusion should be over. And I really like your spell checkers because they are  based on British spelling (as we use in Canada) and not the US version where there are enough differences that my US based version on Firefox finds a ton of silly problems in a single paragraph. I will never likely become accustomed to spelling "centre" as "center". But.....I just used the original spell checker on this site for the above and it found a problem with "British" and "Canada". What's this about????

Just an idle question, obviously.

Hmmmm. Don't know. I can only assume that the words are not in the dictionary. It is quite a simple one/ I will add them in.
