Description Sushil Chauhan 2006-04-11 06:23:38 UTC
Steps to reproduce : 
1) go to
2) search for word 'Visconsin' (incorrect spelling for 'Wisconsin')
3) search result returned 0 records

4) Go to
5) search for 'Visconsin'
6) Google search result says 'Did you mean: Wisconsin' apart from listing records 
for 'Visconsin'.

Expected Result : 
a) Wikipedia should return records for 'Visconsin' if there as well as suggest for 
proper word ('Wisconsin' here).

Remarks : In absence of this feature one have to go to say to get the 
properly spelled word and AGAIN search in Wikipedia to get the expected result.
