Hi, thanks in advance for your help.

When going to http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=gogle, Google will suggest an alternative spelling to misspelled words (Did you mean: google).

Does anyone know of a technique/api out there that I can use to check the spelling of search terms entered by visitors on my search tool?

Regards
James
