My preference, after many years of use is still:
!!spell # Spell check a single line.
!}spell # Spell check a paragraph.
This avoids all that highlighting stuff, by replacing the nominated
text with the list of misspelled words. Undo to retrieve the original
text, and make any necessary corrections.
It's even a minor memory test, at no extra cost. :-)
(Mind you, on debian woody, spell -b seems to require a "-" in order
to wait for input on stdin.)
