I just want to say that, so far, I'm absolutely delighted with Aspell, the GNU open source spell checking program I picked up to use with Opera, as mentioned in my post last night. It kicks all kinds of ass! I much prefer it to LJ's spell checking programs at either the web update page or in the Visions client. The above link is to the version for Windows, but I noticed that they have a Debian package here. Your choice of 22 languages!
