Spell check not working. Clicked for it, it generated this error:

Error processing CFX custom tag "CFX_JSpellCheck".

actually, the server got all slow once I enabled it, so I just removed it again. Maybe that little bit of 5 year old java spellcheck code is a resource hog.

Couldn't you do spell-checking server-side? You could put red squiggly underlines under stuff in the preview or something.

You're bad spelling makes Meatfilter cry.

I'm not bad spelling, you're bad spelling!

I'm telling mom!

But Mathowie, sometimes I make spelling mistakes! Usually the same ones! And when i don't, let me tell you, as the kid who got D's in spelling in grade school (and caught hell for it, at home), I really get a KICK out of the spell checker telling me nothing is wrong!

The new firefox has built-in spellchecking, if you're not an extension fan.

I never used the spell check function (as my many many typos over the years will attest) but I think it's funn tht it's been replaced by a grey bit of what looks like a button, but isn't clickable next to the 3 functioning buttons. (IE 6.0)
