    I've been looking round the forums a little and haven't managed to uncover a way (if possible) of enabling the OSX spellchecker in Safari - for example when writing in threads like this.

    Is there a way of getting the system spellchecker to check EVERYTHING?

    Thanks. :)

    When you're typing your reply, highlight a word or selection. Hold down the Control key and click on it – you'll get a menu. Check out the Spelling options...

    Thanks BV, that's really cool. Is there any way of making it underline incorrect spelling like it does in Mail etc?

    Check the options halfway down that menu.
    Spelling>Check Spelling As You Type.

    Safari only check English spelling, how can I teach it to check spelling other language? For example my native is Russian.
