I am really curious to know that. Emil, how do you create those strange things(like the yellow highlight and the squiggly underline) in a textarea element? I am really curious to know that.

I've already apologized to Emil via email and would like to do so again in public. Emil definitely did inspire the as-you-type SpellingCow version. I have a bookmark on my web browser called "HOLY SH@T!!!!" from the day I came across his site ;-) Emil is correct in that certain notices need to be present and credit given where due. I had intentionally left pieces from the menu system in there kinda to prove that Emil was my inspiration here. The menu is a simple piece that doesn't need a lot of changing, so it's kind of a great place to leave an "Easter Egg Ohmage" if you will. I even have an option for displaying his red squiggly too. But the fact is I had not yet taken the time to properly give him credit, which hadn't seemed like a big deal since I still have 10,000 other things to do and no one knew about SpellingCow anyway. And then I'm on the front page of slashdot.org.... and it's an obvious and glaring oversight. So let me say again, thank you Emil for the ground breaking work, I will be sure to get the proper credits up this week, and I'm very sorry for not having done so sooner! -Craig Craig Nuttall SpellingCow.com Hey All,

I haven't actually touched the code in about a year however I've been meaning to. There will be an update I'm just not sure if I'll go with the LiteSpellChecker or RichSpellChecker approach and then there's the question of when... Chris: Depends on how you look at it.
