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.

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. 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.

click here this although not free has uk english (downloadable) , and will work with Opera and most app's.
I use this in preference to Tiny Spell, worth a look for any Opera user.

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

Regards. j.

Makes little difference then. Might as well download the with Java version and make sure you have the latest Java.

Opera 7.23 seems very stable. I had lots of problems with 7.20 crashing, but I cannot get 7.23 to crash whatever I do.

Many thanks for your reply Pesala. I was with AOL broadband for the past four months, speed test always around the 340 to 384 nothing I or AOL tried would improve this.

Signed with "zen" this morning and speed test averaged over ten test, 484, so yes, in a way I have just joined the broadband brigade! ;o)

My apologies for intruding on your thread, in my excitement, i have just realised my rudeness. j :o(

$25 for a spell-checker. Cor blimey, for £15.90 you could have a full DTP program like Page Plus 9 which has built-in spell checker, grammar checker, etc., etc..
