For all of you who cannot spell.

phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde
Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer inwaht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the
olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit
pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a
porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by

I have a spelling chequer

It came with my pea sea

It plainly marques four my revue

Miss steaks eye cannot sea

When eye strike a quay, right a word

I weight four it two say

Weather eye am wrong oar wright

It shows me strait away

As soon as a mist ache is made

It nose bee fore two late

And eye can put the error rite

Its rarely, rarely grate

I've run this poem threw it

I'm shore your pleased to no

It's letter perfect in it's weigh

My chequer trolled me sew

Sauce unknown

Quite so, this has been mentioned before. However, many people, myself included, have a 'proof-read' ability which we cannot turn off.

So any spelling or grammatical errors leap off the page, to our intense annoyance.

I do use a spell checker(ieSpell), not so much because I can't spell a word, but just to check my typing. As you know, once you press Post response you can't get it back :-)
