    Where is the "Spell Check"? I'm sure I'm looking right at it but not seeing it.

    Answer - there is no built in spelling checker here, but your browser should have on - all major browsers do!
    Examples:
    http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Using the spell checker
    (firefox)
    http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=95604
    (chrome)
    http://www.apple.com/safari/features.html
    (Safari)

    Looks like maybe IE does not have one?
    But there are lots of free extensions that can do it - best bet for most folks is to move to a modern browser, but if staying with IE:

    That's too bad it's not included. It was just so much easier to write a post spll check from the post then put on the forum. Something else for the tech challenged amoung us to learn I guess.

    It's fairly easy to use a better browser - I like Chrome, but firefox and safari are OK too.

    I would not be surprised if a built-in check is available in the future as either core or a add-on...and, if so, I'll install it here for those who use IE.

    Ah, looks like even Microsoft got the message:
    http://www.zdnet.com/blog/microsoft...r-10-to-add-spell-checking-auto-correct/11186

    That means virtually ALL modern browsers will have spell check.
