in reply to Automatic spell checking when previewing

Safari (possibly all of the browsers on a Mac since spell check is a core service) will allow you to spell check any text field by pressing cmd ;. Pretty handy, I am sure there has to be a spell check plug-in for most browsers. Are web based spell checkers really any good? I have used the gmail one and it is good in a pinch, but I recall being annoyed by the other ones I have tried (yahoo and hotmail are the only ones I can recall).

    Thanks for this post. I didn't realise Opera would provide spell checking in form fields just because aspell was installed. I have just looked at it now and it only seems to work in "textarea" boxes and not "text" input fields but it will keep me from copying and pasting into a google search query. :^)

    Spell checking in text areas isn't enabled in all OS X browsers. Only the ones that are Cocoa based (as opposed to Carbon). Mozilla, for example, can't do the spell check trick.
