Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.

NCSA Mosaic 2.0.1 Available

Send Article to a Friend

NCSA Mosaic 2.0.1 Available -- Last Monday, NCSA released Mosaic 2.0.1, the browser that started the Web stampede that most Internet users risk being trampled under today. Although Mosaic 2.0.1 isn't faster (or more stable) than its predecessors, it does support HTML tables, inline JPEG, some HTML 3.0, and offers good control over display characteristics of HTML tags (a feature sorely missing from Netscape).
