I am developing a web app, a game, as an HTML5 word game -- what options do I have as far as spell-checking across the various platforms?  For example, if an Android phone or an iPhone runs the web page and plays the game, what sort of access do I have to spell-checking functionality?  Both Android and iPhones have built-in spell-checking (right?) - but can a web client like Chrome or IE (running on a smart phone) hook into it?

Same question but for PC users.  Can IE or Chrome or Firefox make use of spell-checking?

I am considering either attempting to do the spell checking in real time, or as a last resort, collect the candidate words and when the game ends, go through the words and determine if they qualify.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

all browsers have either built-in or addons for spell checking
