    hey its probably already been said before, but i just remembered a way of spelling long words in textedit (i have to spell skrzynecki in a speech like a bazillion times). anyway, just type the 1st and 2nd letter on the sentance, and the ESC. this menu thing will popup and u can scroll down with the keypad to choose it.

    hope it helps

    might i offer an even more robust and easier suggestion that you might really like. TextExpander. It allows you to format any text and pictures you frequently use and then set triggers. For example, perhaps you type skrzynecki over and over you could make that appear perfectly formatted by setting a trigger such as skr or whatever. It is really much much more powrful than I am describing so check it out. While not free, it has a 30 day trial and I will admit I am a pretty decent bit over 30 days and it still works perfectly. It honestly saves me more time than I can even begin to believe I spent typing the same thing over and over.
