      David --

      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/
      http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.pspell.php

      Hope that helps :)

      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,
      David Holt
