You're the babe. She's a babe, too.

Andy, thanks for the spellchecker tip. I gave it a try, but when I clicked on same, I went to a screen asking if I wanted to download an internet? spellcheck (none of which looked compatible with what I have). Is it my browser? Now, if only we could get rid of those pesky repetitive dashes, dots, & backslashes that mutilate a sentence.

amy, if you've never used the feature, you have to do an initial download. After that, clicking on the icon will perform a spellcheck on your reply (before posting).

Okay. So, you do in fact, have to download a spellchecker, yes? I'll go back and look at the options. As I mentioned, don't see one (or can't figure out) which would be compatible with what I have - my computer.

I can't see the options. It's been a while since I did a download. I remember just one option.

If it's of any help, I have windows xp 2nd edition, & just downloaded the 3rd? edition upgrade. Maybe I can do a google for a spellcheck that is compatible with what I have? Would be cool if Microsoft or whomever, had a spellcheck feature in the toolbar. Just a thought.

Mikki, It's in the full feature reply; Post Reply or Go Advanced, not the quick reply. And it's right above the smilies.

I see the abc check mark in the quick reply. It does not soom to be functional if you are using a handheld.

I made a mess out of my latest posting - don't really see any icon for spell checking anywhere. I use a MAC and Safari, because I've had issues with Firefox? Any suggestions? My messy posting about ice cream is up and I was wondering how I can edit it?

Best,
