Spelling - Faux and Simulant and Faux Pas

    How is spell check updated?  Would it be possible to add to spell check these three words:
    faux and simulant, faux pas?

    faux - not genuine or real; being an imitation of the genuine article; "it isn't fake anything; it's real synthetic fur"; "faux pearls"; "false teeth"; "decorated with imitation palm leaves"; "a purse of simulated alligator hide"

    Due to its low cost and close visual likeness to diamond, cubic zirconia has remained the most gemologically and economically important diamond simulant

    A faux pas is a violation of accepted social norms (for example, standard customs or etiquette rules). Faux pas vary widely from culture to culture

    They haven't even added HubPages yet, have they?  Seems like that get's underlined.  You're probably gonna be waiting awhile.

    Is there a spell-checker when we edit our Hubs? I'm in the process of writing a Hub now, and there doesn't seem to be a spell-checker. Am I misunderstanding something?

    Google tool bar has a spell checker that lets you add to it.

    How do you add the Google toolbar to get the spell check?  Must I use the Google documents?

    If you know how to spell them why do you need spell check?
