what I have just noticed though is the spell check doesnt work.

Am getting the underlined mistakes but right click on the word just brings up the right click normal context menu, in Firefox,  and the spell check button does not check any thing or have any words available or so it seems

yeah, took them quite some convincing of me that we needed to change... I'm pleased with our results though.

Though you'll be happy to know we avoid the "sheep" theme that Clive wanted. But only just as I think Rik was considering it.....  :devil:

hmm - same thing for me. I'd assumed it was my firefox - its been a bit weird as of late. Maybe its the new editor - I'll investigate.

I thought that's where you might have gone :-)

They have a trickier situation with their upgrades, from what I can tell. We have a code base that we have kept clean and documentaed.

Baz - the spell check works in Firefox if you disable the WYSIWYG editor - you can set this in your profile settings.

It works fine in Chrome in either mode.

I've tried to disable the WYSIWYG editor, but it seems to have had no effect.  I'm not sure what we should be seeing instead.  :dunno:
