I contacted the author, and no UK dictionary yet available. Tinyspell is fairly unobstrusive but I don't use it. I'm still looking for a better solution. Right-click any word in Opera and chose dictionary to look up at InfoPlease is pretty good, but I tend to use the Wordweb dictionary to look up words that I don't know or check spellings I am unsure of.
Who needs a spell-checker anyway? Posted earlier on this forum et.al.

The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by it slef but the wrod as a wlohe.
Your paragraph of misspelled words does prove your theory, I was halfway through reading it before I realised! ;o)
Question on Opera if I may? Do I download the with "Java" or the without version. This will be my first trial of Opera, just changed over to a new Broadband ISP this morning and using IE6 through win.XP Pro. SP1
