    I just use Firefox Version and it has the spell checker in it. Under Tools/Options/Advanced Check spelling as you type. Works for me. I set Google as my Home page. "Don't need no stinkin Tool Bar." or do I? BG

      On occasion I will compose a post on Microsoft Word. The spell check is done there. When I am ready to post, I just copy and paste to the text box here. THe extra step is a minor hassle, but if I am on dialup in the shop, I can disconnect while composing.

        Lane, been reading and understanding your writings just fine?
        "The men the American people admire most extravagantly are the greatest liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth." H. L. Mencken

        "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed, second it is violently opposed, and third, it is accepted as self-evident."

          I think check-as-you-type spell checking is enabled by default on FireFox 2.0.x

          Are you seeing dotted red-lines under words in the "Reply to Thread" box?
          If you right-click on the red-lined word, Firefox will show you a list of spelling corrections.

          By the way Lane, your posts are fine without any spell-check, we only want to see your incredible model Bridgeport again
