    A spell checker would be a nice feature.

    It's in WordPress 2.1- and if you have firefox 2.1 it has it as well.

    Users should use the spell-checkers on their local systems, such as in Mac OS X you get spell checking practically anywhere you type.

    Addressed with browser plugins much better than can be done via a web page.

    Yeah, the Firefox spell checker works, but the one that comes with wp 2.1 does not work. Never...

    Sorry to sound like a broken record, but must agree - use Firefox or a number of browser add ons - the maintenance involved and bloat factor of including this in WordPress just isn't worth it!!!

    ... and can be done by a plugin, so that it won't bloat the wordpress core needlessly

    I like this idea because WP is a blogging tool (and much more) so I think every blogging tool needs a spell checker.

    I agree. Use FF and don't bloat WP.

    Firefox, it would just add unneeded weight to wordpress.
