Thanks for the spell checker Magister. English has some tricky, tricky words in it. Now we can all sound intelligent! Well, maybe not all of us... Particularly me if you've already been given kudos for this.
I don't seem to be able to find that feature anywhere on my screen. Could someone please enlighten me.

"To be born into this world a sentient, self-conscious and reasoning being, surrounded by inexhaustible glories in Nature, which we may comprehend, possess,enjoy; to be able to rise on the wings of a lofty imagination; to be able to get glimpses of the ideally perfect; to apprehend the Divine; it is to the development and enjoyment of these high powers that the young man is invited. How dare he refuse to qualify himself by the most perfect training of all his powers." Lyman J. Gage 1910

Yep it's firefox, not LTTD. But hailing LTTD is always good anyway so let's do that.

I write everything in Word, where there is an excellent spellchecker, and just copy and paste. I have the spellchecking feature in my Firefox too, but Word is more reliable.
Of course, neither of those fix [most] grammar mistakes, or [really damn] stupid mistakes in the meaning of the content itself. So, of course, there is still enough room for looking not-so-intelligent, as you mentioned.
But yeah, the spellchecker clears up at least some part of one's presentation. I can't recommend it enough.
There is no such thing as evolution - Just a list of creatures Chuck Norris has allowed to live.
Good news. I wondered why we don't have spell check in here. IE was hiding it? I'll have to give Firefox a shot. But then not having spell check has forced me to use my brain more, which is also good news...

I would agree that being aware of your spelling is a good thing - but then I've also noticed that along the years I have picked up some bad habits in my spelling, very little in my own language but a bit more in English, so now my brain misspells those words by habit, so the spell check is a way to make me aware of them and break the habit. This is one error where a dictionary would not help out, since typically I would not doubt my own spelling and look the word up.
While having never invented a sin, I'm trying to perfect several.
