IE spell checking

For the people using IE there is a nice freeware spell checker available. It integrates with IE and adds a spell check button to the toolbar and to the right-click menu. It spell checks the text in form fields on a web page. Perfect for spell checking forum posts. Unfortunately since it is IE specific it does not work with Mozilla, Opera and other non-IE browsers.

And the best part... It includes words like "unicyclist" and "unicycling" in its dictionary.

The program is called ieSpell and is available at http://www.iespell.com/

I used ieSpell to spell check this entire page and it didn't find any errors.

But since it only checks spelling in form fields it didn't actually spell check anything.

That's what you think...

The spellchecker John found only checks words in text boxes you can type stuff into, not the entire page. There's not much point spellchecking someone else's pages...
