All right! Admit it! Who was involved in Adobe Dreamweaver? 'Noctilux' isn't recognised by the spell check and comes up as 'snottily'.

Other gems with other programs have included Hindu for Honda and Vilest/Velocities for Velocette/Velocettes (motorcycles). Any further offers?

Cheers,

R.

You have to check your spell check. Think of it as "auto exposure" for words. It don't always work.

Nice analogy, Al!

My spellchecker doesn't recognize 'Leica' either and suggests 'Leach' instead...

Adding to the dictionary is one of my favourite hobbies. The spell check has a 4th grade vocabulary that needs to be educated.

Don't even get me started on predictive text, never mind spell checkers(I use my head for that, it's not so bad)
