The demo works fine in Safari.

I've downloaded the code but I guarantee that I'll take a while to  
get to it.  Still moving :/  So if anyone's going to take it up,  
please start a Cookbook page (with an in-progress notice) and maybe  
this could be a collaborative effort.

The problem with the ajax spell checker is that it requires pspell.   
I would assume that's not standard.

I just ran a test on OS X (non-server) and it's installed

I created a file named pspellcheck.php:


echo "Hello pspell user!";
} else {
echo "Bummer!  No pspell!";}

And my browser came up with "Hello pspell user!"

Anyone else want to give it a try?  How common is this module in php  

Language is inadequate to speak to souls...it's like struggling with  
incompetent tools when *everything* of *REAL* importance is at  
stake.  Bodies, possessions, money, time...those are transient and  
inconsequential.  What really REALLY matters is that you touch  
people, in frank, deep, honest ways that help them learn and grow,  
and that you nurture them and that you convey to people that they are  
real, independent, thinking, loving, feeling and PRECIOUS beings.   
Doing that makes you immortal, doing that feeds the immortal part of  
you; it's like bringing a slice of "heaven" to earth.
