Re: Spelling Corrections

Thanks Wouter.  That was extremely helpful.  I know that there are going to be people jumping all over me for this, but I am actually more interested in implementing this feature for Webkit.  The one thing I want to ask though is how spell checking is actually implemented.  How is it done for the default Gecko build of Epiphany?  Is it a product of the rendering engine or the browser?

Not sure whether this is directly related, but there is a bug about spell
checking support in GTK+ directly. See for more information (CC yourself):
