    That would bring the dictionary and show the meaning of the word that your mouse pointed(it gives you a nice small window ), i think that is cool feature for thoes people whose english is not their first language,like me; however, i found that key combination is hard to press, does anyone here now how can i chnange it to different key combination, e.g. ctrl+apple.
    thx in advance :)

    Seems easy to me. Do you not have an keyboard with the US layout?

    Anyway, open 'System Preferences' and go to 'Keyboard & Mouse'. Select the 'Keyboard Shortcuts' tab. If you can change it, I'd guess it would be in there.

    How does get this dictionary function? Is it only with Tiger?

    That's how I changed the shortcut on my iMac. Punching F1 seems much easier than the Vulcan salute. ;)

    Anyone know the feature "spellcheck"?

    "thoes"?
    "chnange"?
    Believe me, I have the highest regard for anyone who can communicate in more than one language; please don't take this comment as being disrespectful -- it's not directed at anyone in particular, but seemingly, after reading tons of stuff here and elsewhere on the internet, at EVERYONE in particular:

    ANYONE KNOW THE FEATURE "SPELLCHECK"?

    That's the next new-fangled feature somone's going to have to discover and try out . . .Oh well, seems like very little chance of that . . .

    Although people at work tend to use me as their own personal spellcheck, I always use it on anything I keyboard --- It ALWAYS finds one or more careless errors perfect me is totally unaware of . . . I'm so sick of reading everybody else's gibberish . . . I'm done. (shuts up) :D

    Can you spell check when submitting forms with html then? Not wishing to be pedantic, but I read an article some time ago about how you can still read words that are spelt wrong as quick as correctly spelt words. Providing of course the first and last letter are correct.

    In Safari you can: Edit menu -> Spelling -> Check Spelling as You Type. :)
    And, to be just as pedantic, you have to have the first two and last two letters correct for that mind-trick to work... :p ;)
