    As a spelling fanatic I just laugh at that. I see stuff similar to that all the time and it is pathetic that people don't take enough care with their spelling. Google is only showing they don't care enough to check their own work and they hope we are too stupid to see it is wrong ourselves.

    compilers don't have spell check. At least none that I have ever used do.

    You can name whatever you want .. however you want. So it would be useless.

    Text on buttons, forms, labels... they all have to be eyeballed.

    It IS still funny tho

    I used Word 2000 for years. It was decent in the spelling and grammar department. Now I've got Word 07 and Word 2010 on two different computers. Man, is Word 07 bad when it comes to grammar and spelling.

    I swear 9 out of 10 times it gets its and it's wrong along with a lot of other stuff. I should go back to Word 2000 but it doesn't have the doc to PDF feature and it's sort of unstable on Win 7.

    You can't rely solely on any program for correct spelling. In word, I have spelt words such as recognise and recognize, knowing one is U.S. English and one is Australian English. It doesn't show either to be wrong sometimes.

    You need to check things yourself thoroughly or pay somebody like me to do it for you if you want to be certain your material is free from errors.
