It seems many people writing in the forums do not have a spell checker.

Other than the spell checker we can install webword so that the word in doubt can be checked with a click (ctl+right click) only!

I was looking over someone's profile page the other day and noticed a misspelled word in one of their summaries. It was clear what the author was trying to say so I just moved on to another hub, happily oblivious. Then today, I was writing a new hub and got to the summary part and worried that I...

When I choose one of the alternative spellings the whole screen goes dark and freezes. I need to back out and start over again and loose the corrections. I also get a half window. No words on it that I can read but there's an exclamation point on the left side. What can be...
