please don't bring up old threads unless you have something meaningful to say or ask.

Seconded; I find it annoying when people do that.

Not to mention he spelled "antidisestablishmentarianism" wrong...

Antidisestablishmentarianism. Onomatopoeia. Supercalifragilisticexpialodocious.

Pneumanultramicroscopicsilicovolcanaconiosis. Best I remember, that's how it's spelled. That's at least how it's pronounced.

As a matter of fact I was checking to see if the spell check recognised the word, so it was a useful comment, you unjust man. Please tell me how you type small

You called me unjust, yet you expect me to tell you how to type small?

tsk, tsk

I am sorry sir, please tell me

you do not need to POST the comment to check, just preview it. no small text for you.

I am sorry I have learnt my lesson sir, I really want to find out how. Antidistablishmentarinism

Psssst...Put two commas in front of and after your text

Put two equal signs before and after text to get big

and when you add more =signs you get smaller large font

Like this

This is the biggest(reference)

Um, but in the process did we loose the Preview Comment ? I see it up at the top of the box, but mine doesn't work :-( I get only this in the preview box: undefined

Ok, so maybe a variable name got altered accidentally in the Jscript?

Preview Your Reply

doesnt work for me either... Preview Your Reply undefined same thing as you.

I wonder if.... =Preview Your Reply=

nope :-)

Aaaaaaaaaah ah, interesting.

I wonder if this will also detect grammar errors ...

Oh, seems I've found a bug.

When i write i instead of I, and when I press "change it", it does not change it.

It does not change i into I. =o)

I assume its a bug pertaining to the replacement of things like... Doggs are fun! ...to keep the D capitilized.

You must have the more casual spell check, then. :) Just kidding, I was looking at my firefox spell check. Both versions are now valid.

Why does it recognise recognize when we all recognise that it's not recognize?

Looks to be a British thing. From Merriam-Webster:

One entry found for recognise.

Main Entry: rec·og·nise
chiefly British variant of RECOGNIZE

So, if British-English language recognises recognise, and if American-English language recognizes recognize, then, I propose that International-English language rekonizes rekonize.

Oh, you better rekkignize! All right, both proper and improper (I'll let you figure out which is which) forms of the word are now valid.

me wll alwas spel RONG LOL

Didn't it already have it? Well are you using internet explorer? Oh i just saw it cool.

Cool! Does it recognize "instructables"? (I don't know because I added it to the dictionary I have for Firefox")

Ahh, beaten to the punch. I was just coming here to announce this.
