@JGoldman10,
A line of small red dots under a word when you are typing your Reply in the Reply Box indicates a misspelled word. Look it up then on google.com.

Well, that's how I do it, anyway.

@JGoldman10,
Which internet browser are you using? Many of them have spell checks that check your spelling as you type.

For instance, Firefox puts red lines under words it doesn't recognize and if you right-click the mouse on the word, it gives a list of possible words you can choose for automatic correction.

@JGoldman10,
You could type your post into word or some other programme that does have spellcheck and then copy it here. Alternatively you could check your posts yourself - you keep telling us how smart you are....

@JGoldman10,
I downloaded a spell-checker from ieSpell--it is compatible with Internet Explorer and installs as part of the "tools" menu. You click it on after each post or document you write and it will find your errors and give you correct spelling choices. It does not automatically indicate errors as you type, you must click it on each time you want to check a post before hitting reply, or if you want to check the spelling of a particular word after you type it. I have never had any problems using it.

You can find it here.
