Yes, I agree that incorporating a spell checker is not worth the time-- esp. when people abbreviate, make up words, purposely misspell, type actual words that aren't appropriate in the sentence, etc.--if one's browser does it!

- allowing graphics
- getting table formatting done right/importing excel
- WYSIWYG text formatting

are all more important I think.

Allowing graphics opens up a whole can of worms in terms of appropriateness and speed. I posted this as a partial solution:

Allowing approved-site graphics. Perhaps each board could have it's own table of approved sites. Each board could make it's own list and submit them to the Fool. EG, MSN Finance, not all of MSN, etc. So some initial overhead for the Fool staff in checking to see if the board's list is OK, but not too much ongoing I would think. This could avoid the nasty pictures, etc.

I have no idea what this would really entail though. We shall see what they decide to come up with. I'm sure the Fool will think long and hard on how to improve posting.
