Poking through some old stuff I have access to, I found a listing for ieSpell. I know folks have asked for some sort of spell checker, maybe this will do the job for you? From reading it appears to be a plugin for your browser (IE). Please be aware, I haven't tried it personally!!!!!

Another option is the Google Tool Bar which is also available for Macs using Firefox. It also give Popup blockers.

The ieSpell has done the trick for me. Doesn't help much with bad puns and general juvenile humor however.

I tried the Google desktop search (not what you're recommending Mike) but didn't like it grinding away all the time in the background and I thought it was hamstringing my computer some. My point being that after uninstalling it I still found scads of stuff left behind that I couldn't/can't figure out how to remove. I'm very annoyed and if I leaned towards cynicism I'd suspect spy-ware. Anything that doesn't completely uninstall makes me suspicious. Until I know more, Google is on my list, and not the good list.

One that I've really grown to appreciate is TinySpell. It sits on the Quicklaunch bar and runs in addition to any other checker that might be loaded. Since it works directly with the keyboard buffer, it doesn't care what program might be taking input. It just monitors every keystroke and alerts you to a spelling that doesn't match one in it's 100,000+ word list. Mispellings (like that one) make its icon go yellow. If you click on the icon, it gives you a list of spelling probables you might have meant. Click on the correct one and it automatically replaces the mistake.

Simple, free, and small, no dictionary or other devices.
