    There are two different options. You can either use an access database with known good words and then cross reference the text with the DB. Anything not in the DB may be spelled incorrectly.

    The other option is a hosted solution. You post text to them and the post back the results. Can't remember the name off hand, but I know there is one out there for ASP.

    I have also seen solutions that use Microsoft Word, either server side or client side. Might want to check into this.

    I think it is possible on server side if Word is installed... Most web servers don't have Word installed though.

    I don't think it's possible to use the client side Word without outputting the text into a doc, letting the user download and make changes, then upload it back.
