I was wondering if it is an easy task to create a spell checker. I have a content box which users will type an article in. It would be so cool if I had a button to correct all there spelling mistakes or tell them there is no spelling mistakes?

I think there should be some kind a open source english datafase also for this...

Only site I know that uses this kind a feature is alibaba.com.

Thanks Very Much!!

I feel the temptation to say something nasty about search engines and manuals, but I think I can resist.

If you feel comfortable including GPL-code in your project, you might want to try this:
