Now even though that having QuickTag toggled FCKeditor (ChenPress) allows wp-spellcheck to work, I have some recent findings on the net that make DHTML/XMLHttpRequest/AJAX spellcheck thats makes me excited.
At first, Purely dhtml spell check would be ispell (for IE) and those integration of spellcheck plugins for WYSIWYG Editors (MudBomb, HTMLArea, FCKeditor…), but now…
1. See this very cool DHTML spellcheck which check your spelling while u type (like word, something i wanted in the first few posts in my blog)
Its code is implemented via js and cgi perl and aspell. (shouldnt be a problem if you want to port it to php)
2. This implementation done using some ajax library (CPAINT or SAJAX) and php (and pspell [with aspell wrappers])
Usage: click spell check to start the spelling check (like gmail’s)
3. Of this AJAX SpellChecker mention in 2, a wordpress plugin was then packaged by m0n5t3r (http://exotic4.nipne.ro/~iacobs/work/wordpress-plugins/ajax-spell-checker/)
4. A nice working implementation of a Ajax spell check that should not be forgotten is the Spell check included in Gmail.
5. I modified the ajax spellcheck mentioned in 3 and 2 and then packaged and place it here. Download it here.
- Just copy, activate and you get your spell check activated for writing posts and comments

- The nick m0n5t3r is a form of 1337(leet) jargon
- Using eAccelerator (improved of mmCache) and free/better alternative to Zend Accelerator does seems to speed up my php pages alot (each page is served ~1s compared to 4s) by caching compiled php.
Note: Click on Check Spelling to do the spell check.
