This website is great.
Can it not be improved with some sort of spelling checker.
I know most people who access this site are pretty good spellers.
It may upset some people. (including me!)
This is up to the Forum Editor.

If you're using IE use IESpell click here Firefox has it's own. We have gone through all this before AitchBEE, I think the most useful addition would be an 'Edit' option.

  Aitchbee 20:13 16 Mar 2011

I haven't gone through it all before.

I don't have any difficulty spelling or typing in words, I just thought that some people might find it a reassurance when they are typing in a lot of words who are not as eloquent as you or I.

A lot of people in the UK can't read or write.

A bit of web management is all that is required.

I like not having an Edit option.
You have to learn to think before you post and also it could make nonsense of some replies if forumites alter their original posts.

  Aitchbee 20:27 16 Mar 2011

No harm done lotvic.
But I think you should go back to school.
(only kidding)

"A bit of web management is all that is required."

How about a bit of self management?

Most browsers come with a spell checker, and there are spell checkers available.

Or use Word and cut and paste, as I know many people do.

Glasgow now has quite a lot of foreigners in its environs. A spell checker facility might be a boon to all of these people who visit this website.
Tell me if i'm wrong.

It highlights for my review
Mistakes I cannot sea.

I ran this poem thru it
I'm sure your pleased to no
Its letter perfect in it's weigh
My checker told me sew.

Owed to a Spell Checker
with apologies to Percy Dovetonsils

I have a spelling checquer
It came with my pea sea
It plane lee marks four my revue
Miss steaks aye can knot sea

Eye ran this poem threw it
Your sure real glad two no
It's vary polished in it's weigh
My checker tolled me sew

A checker is a bless sing
It freeze yew lodes of thyme
It helps me awl stiles two reed
And aides me when aye rime

To rite with care is quite a feet
Of witch won should be proud
And wee mussed dew the best wee can
Sew flaws are knot aloud

And now bee cause my spelling
is checked with such grate flare
Their are know faults with in my site
Of nun eye am a wear

Each frays comes posed up on my screen
Eye trussed to be a joule
The checker poured o'er every word
To cheque sum spelling rule

That's why aye brake in two averse
By righting wants too pleas
Sow now ewe sea why aye dew prays
Such soft wear for pea seas

"Tell me if i'm wrong."

You're wrong, and I don't see the relevance to foreigners in Glasgow.
