There are few open source free spell checkers you need to include in your asp.net project solution to enable this feature:

http://wareseeker.com/free-asp.net-spell-checker/    -  This is a link to the option discussed below (UltimateSpell)


http://www.codeproject.com/KB/aspnet/checkspelling.aspx  - This is not what we are looking for.  You enter 1 word, and it does a spell check on that one word.


http://www.aspnetspell.com/asp.net-spell-check-control.aspx - This may be an option.  It does not seem to provide as many options as “UltiamteSpell” discussed below.


http://www.karamasoft.com/  - This is a link to the option discussed below (UltimateSpell)


http://www.keyoti.com/products/rapidspell/dotnetweb/ - This could be an option, but it’s not free.

http://www.telerik.com/products/aspnet-ajax/spell.aspx - This could be an option.  Costs 999.00, and looks similar to UltimateSpell.

 The real free one is:

When you preview your site prior to publishing use Firefox.  It has a spell checker and underlines the misspelled words
