ieSpell, a spell checker add-on for Internet Explorer (via Ordinary Life). I can see the point of this; not only is it client-side and therefore exceedingly fast, but it will give you spell-checking in everything you deal with. However, it’s a browser plugin, and I don’t think that that’s the way that stuff should be going — I can’t help thinking that sites should have an easy way to implement spell-checking for their users. It should be relatively easy to build something on the Stuffed Dog XML-RPC Speller web service. The perennial choice between having it work for every thing that one person does, and having it work for every person doing one thing, I suppose. Besides, I use Mozilla. :) ——-
