Javascript Spell Checker

P: n/a
I'm looking for a minimal impact spell checker to use on a work site
form. Nothing real fancy but it would be nice to get the red
'squiggle' line below the mis-spelled word much as I am at this moment
while filling out this post. :-)

Anyone know of a simple code that I can include (primarily for my
textarea box)??? I tried the open source one at http://spellerpages.sourceforge.net/
but couldn't get it running and quite a few questions at their forum
location hadn't been answered so...

Any help is very much appreciated.

There are AJAX-based spell-checking solutions out there (a comprehensive
dictionary file would be too large to use client-side at this point),
but a much easier solution would just be to let your users handle this
for themselves. AFAIK, the latest versions of essentially every browser
(Firefox, IE, Opera, Safari) all have this capability built-in.
