Is this Internet Explorer doing this or the board?

Just this morning, my posts suddenly seem to be spell-checked. They never have been before. What's happened? Anyone know? :-?

It's quite useful, in fact ...

It's your browser, if not even your very OS. Creative spelling will not be tolerated any more.
(Which depends... some applications rely on the system-wide language packs, some have their own - I don't know about IE...)

Weird though. It's never happened before. Just started this morning. I quite like it. I feel the great hand of the almighty paternal internet lifting me up. :really:

Last night I turned a Windows 7 laptop on for the first time in a few days and it decided for itself to download and install "Service Pack 1". Web searches suggest that that might allow IE10 (which I don't have) to use an optional spellchecker.

This may or may not be relevant !

Firefox has a spellchecker.

I suspect that that is, indeed, very relevant, David. My machine decided, without a by your leave, to upgrade the browser to IE10 just the other day. So that's probably it, isn't it? IE10 doing it. I haven't noticed any other differences, apart from a slight change in look when you open a new blank tab.
