just kidding about the summary, but you guys should adopt a spell checker, like Google or Youtube has, if i go in to Wikipedia and type something im not sure the spelling is it just says page not found, then i take what i typed into your site copy and paste it into Google search and it corrects it for me, now i know that most people that are not computer illiterate, are going to know how to do this, but if you were to adopt a spell checker that suggests the closest word to what i enter and i click on it i could find a lot more information a lot faster, then having to go through Google, but that's just my 2 cents.
