Description Zach Dennison 2005-09-10 16:36:55 UTC
I was using gmail one day to mail the Wikipedia-I mailing 
list when I saw the spell check link. This gave me an 
idea: MediaWiki should have one. I will explain my 
understanding of the gmail spell check feature, becuase I 
liked it so much. You click a link (in MediaWiki, it 
could be a button in the toolbar), and it highlights all 
the unknown words in the text box. When you click on a 
highlighted word, a box appears with a list of 
suggestions. If no suggestions are available, a box pops 
up that says "(no suggestions)". It uses javascript, so 
it's not like a new window, just a new box. If anybody 
has gmail, please check this out and see if it would be 
good for mediawiki. Just compose an email, type some 
random words with errors, and click spell check to see 
what i am talking about. If anyone wants an invite to 
test this, I can give you one. I hope a lot of people 
like this idea. Thank You, Shardsofmetal.
