spell checker for textarea

Is there anyone who has experience/knows how to implement this?
Users in a LAN need a spell checker to verify spelling of text they enter into "textarea". This spell checker should preferably be automatically triggered when "submit" is pressed.

The simplest option is to have it in the browser, I am using Mozilla but I am prepared to replace it if necessary if there is a browser that supports spell checker for other than mail and "composing". I couldn't find one on the net, even "Opera" does not support that.

Another option is to use "ispell" in a returning PHP function or similar but I have no idea how to do that although I know how to create the code to return a suitable HTML/PHP document (in assembly). This PHP solution (if feasible) is my preferred option.

Your help is most appreciated.
