I've noticed that the spell checker will not read anything in the less than and greater than brackets. For example, <something> will not be read by the spell checker. Is this supposed to happen or is it a bug?
I get inconsistent results with the spell checker. I tend to write long posts and I've found obvious misspellings the checker has missed. For instance levl and o (that I found and corrected after spell checking the post, submitting it, and then re-reading it later). The spell checker catches the levl example for this particular post, but not the o. I don't know if that's intentional (as in "luck o the Irish"), but it seems odd for the spell checker to ask about it.
Anyway, I just wanted to mention the inconsistency (I'm positive it occurred even though I can't reproduce it).

There's really no way I can see to spell check a single letter. I still recommend that everyone use a local spell checker and the advantages of one are many and the cons are really nil. I see the LQ spell checker as a fallback for when a local one isn't available.
