        I mis-wrote "ther e". There is a space between "ther" and "e". The spell-check caught that "ther" was not a word, but it didn't show that "e" was the problem.

        For single letters, especially not "I" or "a", you could check for a word on either side that is mis-spelled.

        I do a LOT of technical documentation and the plethora of spelling "squigglies" (red wavy underline) makes some sections unreadable. I put a "Language" link in the tool bar so I can select text, click Language, then select a language that I don't have installed - so the spellcheck turns off for the selection and squigglies go away.

        What's really needed is a toolbar link to turn off grammar/spellcheck for the text that I select in order to get rid of impediments to readability. If I had all of the languages installed on my PCs, this little trick wouldn't work.
