recommend an easy-to-use Spell Checker (either AJAX, DHTML or Javascript)

I am looking to use a spell checker in my multi-field forms and am trying to
find something open source and easy to install and use.

It could be either AJAX, DHTML or Javascript.

ANy ideas and links are much appreciated!

Of those three options, AJAX is the only one that can do what you want.
You will have to have a server side spellchecker app that you can submit
the form to and let the server check the spelling. There are too many
words/languages to try to do it client-side.

OH, why not? Let him use English only, to limit the options. I think his
users would LOVE to download the entire English dictionary when they
access his site. After all, it's all text, right?
