I say that cowering in anticipation of the lash of Jody's wet
noodle :), because I think we will all agree that by far the
weakest component of NoteTab is its spell checker.
So if we can help point each other toward replacement spell
checkers that contain real-world dictionaries, then how can that
Anyway, I'm wondering if any of you have tried the Merriam
Webster spell checker that they tout at their online
dictionary/thesaurus web site:
I'm tempted to give it a try, but as always, I'm interested to
hear what others have to say. Here's what they say in their ad:
