Default Spell check

Now the forums have automatic spell checks as well. Doug, you wizard you, how did you do that? It's not an easy feature to implement.

I wouldn't be surprised if vBulletin offers spellchecking too, though. Or will in the future. I read somewhere that the latest RC of SMF already has it.

I use both IE and FF anyway. I have Google Toolbar in both, and I use the spellchecker that comes with that.

I use all three.

I'm a bit disappointed with the latest FireFox, I must say.
