        Currently there is no support for adding a spell checker to the RTE..

        Since there is no "open" or "free" web service api's for spell checking, you would have to write one from scratch..

              Thanks for the responses.

              While I agree that it would be great if all browsers implemented spell
              checking, but the reality now is they don't, and it would be nice to
              provide a consistent spell-checking experience across browsers.

              A good example is Yahoo mail. If I run it in FireFox, it's true I get
              dynamic underlining of mispelled words. But even in IE without add-ins,
              I can still click the Spell Check button and get the same underlining
              with context menues containing suggestions.

              Does anyone know if Yahoo used a readlily available library for this or
              did they write one from scratch?

              For that matter, does anyone know if Yahoo Mail even uses the YUI RTE,
              or if they use a different RTE?

              Thanks,

                Currently, the new Yahoo! Mail does not use the YUI RTE.

                As far as I know, there isn't an available Spell Checking web service that could be used for such a thing.

                From what I do know, the Yahoo! Mail system has it's own built in spell checking service.

                You can build your own in PHP with the pspell extension:
                http://aspell.net/
