Spell-checker alternative found - Expert Software Email Spellmaster works!

I can't type worth a tinker's d**m - and have a worse habit - as many of you guys know - of reversing two adjacent letters or a letter and a space. But - "Expert Software" - the el-cheapo-programs routinely available in retail stores - has an "email checker" called SpellMaster you can set up to review any text copied (ctrl-c) to the buffer and correct it on the fly. It is qualified for Windows NT, Windows 95, and Win3.1. Mac's? (Who knows? Who cares? 8<))

To use it: Buy the software and install it. Edit their file "Spellmst.ini" to include Yourdon's reply dialog box: for example, ... App2=Post Answer Microsoft Internet Explorer

To use it, set up the [Options] dialog box to review text copied to the buffer, and just highlight and "ctrl-c" the text prior to hitting the [Submit] button. It'll prompt you for replacing words, ignoring words, auto-replacing, adding to the custom dictionary, etc. - all the usual stuff.

Great, Robert! Now, if they'd only come up with a 'cooking checker"...

I've seen some of your Y2K recipes posted.
