EPiServer 6 – It’s 2010 and I can’t check my spelling!

So with the release of EPiServer 6 and all it’s advancements comes the news that spell checking is handled by your browser, great news if your using Firefox, a shambles if your not.

How did the decision to disable spell checking for IE ever get out into the wild? And how are we supposed to explain this away to our clients?

Looks like I’ll be spending the day adding it back into the tinyMCE editor and working how to get the spell checking service up and running.

Cheers EPiServer 6 developers!

[EDIT] I don't actually appear to have the ability in FireFox either!

I'm currently looking into reinstating the spell checking functionality provided by tinyMCE, and will update you all once I have a working solution.

With regards to Firefox spell checking, is anyone else not getting this as a right click option?

I have it working out-of-the-box on a new CMS 6 installation (with Alloy demo site installed) on both PC and Mac with standard Firefox 3.6.2 installations.

Hi All

I have successfully implemented the spell checking using tinyMCEs own .NET handler. I'll be creating a new blog post shortly detailing how to configure.
