Spell Check

I have Spell Check on Microsoft Office ................. that works on all documents and on emails. I have it set to automatically change certain of my commonly mis-spelled words

But it has never worked on sites such as Friends Reunited or Genes Reunited

Spell Check is also turned on in Firefox ......... but doesn't work on sites

However ..................... as GR is no longer seemingly checking Suggestions ............... I doubt this Suggestion is going to go anywhere, even if it is a responsibility of the site :-)

My spell check was on any site I wiggly line

Laptop has been to the menders and have now lost it......will put it back eventually

Surely Spell Check is a function of your software, NOT of the site?

I know my Spell Check is part of my Microsoft Office program

The problem I think is that Spell Check may not work on all sites ....... for reasons that I do not understand

Most sites offer this facility.

I know I have a couple of problem words. Have a post-it note stuck to the printer with the correct spelling for reference.

Would also make this pedant very happy.......

:-D ;-) :-D
