    A-Is there a spell check in the forum? If so where is it? B-How are corrections made to prior inputs?

    Click on the icon above your post with the little pencil and you will be able to edit your posts. I don't believe the Forum has spell check.

      As Frank says, use the pencil icon to edit your post. [u]However</u>, it is helpful if you make a note afterwards as to the nature of your edit (i.e. - "edited for spelling").

      If you are using Internet Explorer, you should have a spell check feature in your browser. If it looks like mine, there is an icon at the top of the page that says "ABC Check".

          Firefox browsers automatically underline misspelled words in red, a la MS Word. (Just something I've found helpful )

              I recently switched to Firefox and now have spell check on the Forum. In fact, it just told me "spell check" is two words, not one.

              I've seen no spell check that recognizes Stude or Studebaker.[V] You've got to add it to its dictionary.

                Why?? Who doesn't know how to spell Studabacker??

                  I've found the best spell check on the forum is the readers. But seriously if you care ( i do not as many have noticed) and you don't have spell check. Pre-type your message in a word document. Then do the spell check before you copy and paste your message into the forum.

                  Me i step in mud puddles, walk in the rain, and step on the cracks in sidewalks. Freedom of the geezer set, no worries about it all.

                    OK Lets Hit It: Thanks to all that responded. The red arrow (?) on the sheet of paper icon will let me correct the spelling/grammer but, unless I'm doing some thing wrong it just post the entire corected entry. Then two of the same postings appear, one w/error(s) one w/o. bridgegaurd, I can't miss using: words/spell check/cut and paste.

                    The FORMAT line for this posting don't have a Red check or arrow on a sheet of paper icon.

                    Thanks again.
