If you use IE or IE based browsers, you can try ieSpell (free for personal use)

I haven't tried ieSpell myself. No comments (from me) for this product.

I decided to go with NotesPad Antony. If I had to use IE for brushing my teeth, I'd go brushless most of the time.
Thanks,

The next, best step in checking your spelling in SillyDog's posts is the Spellchecker Extension to Mozilla browsers mentioned by Ramona in the Spellcheck for Netscape Navigator thread.

It uses Mozilla's built in dictionary and works terrifically. The use of the Spellchecker Extension now eliminates any extra step in the process of spell checking your posts.

[Edit: Works fine for me in Mozilla 1.7.2. Ramona reports that it works in Netscape 7.2. Firefox may require more work to use this. I do not have Firefox installed yet.]

Be sure to see my warnings in the thread, Spellcheck for Netscape Navigator about uninstalling Mozilla extensions before deciding to install any.

SpellBound is yet another option for checking your text input spelling. It now works for both the Mozilla Suite and FireFox. See the SillyDog thread, SpellBound: Spell Check Text input for details.

The below is mentioned here since Notespad was discussed in this current thread as an aid to spell checking posts.

A method of installing Notespad on Windows XP SP2 systems without getting an "Invalid Drive" error is now discussed in another SillyDog Thread, [sdt=12223]Notespad Installation, Windows XP SP2, Invalid Drive Error[/sdt].

Spellbound, at the above location, at the current time, does not seem to install in Firefox 1.5.x versions, but there is a solution which is described at:

How to Install a Spell Checker Into Newer Versions of Firefox

That page links you to the SpellBound Development version page on MozillaZine. Clicking on the Install SpellBound Dev link worked for me.

I have been able to install spell checking into Firefox 1.5.0.7 without any obvious, serious issues.

It is worth noting that both Firefox 2.0 and SeaMonkey 1.1 will have inline spell check built-in, without the use of any outside extensions.

And its about time, too!

I hope that the built-in spell checker will be as good as Spellbound.
