I just came up with another great idea here folks. what about a spell check feature? i know there's been times i've had to open up various windows and/or tabs to check on how to spell certain big words i wanted to use in some hubs. however, it would be a lot less time consuming if there was a way we could have a spell check feature to check for grammar before publishing. that would be cool, right?
This feature is already available from the toolbar when editing a text capsule. You may want to take it for a spin.
I use the Google toolbar. It has a spelllcheque fo r any online writin.
Firefox has something similar. I like firefox, as it has it's own built-in spell checker.
I've gone through older hubs, and noticed tons of mispellings where my fingers just went faster than my brain. Firefox tends to catch it all... Well, except words spelled right but used wrong, but I don't thinks there's a grammar check available. Not even word catches all those mistakes...
Speaking of spelling improvements. Is there a ways to comprehensively spell check all the capsules? I find it time consuming. More capsules help the flow and the advertising but the effort is sometimes daunting.

Any way to have the ability to spell check the entire hub?Also, Wikipedia - isn't showing up in my spell check as an option - ability to add that to universe of correctly spelled words?

It would be nice to have just one button to spell check my hub before I publish it, instead of having to click it within the capsule. I usually have multiple capsules per hub and since it takes a bit for the ajax or...
