Blogspot Spellcheck

Those of you who read my previous post on hangboards before this might have noticed the strange yellow highlighting. It's fixed now, but it turns out that the spellcheck in the Blogger compose box actually modifies the contents, by inserting span tags like these:

<span class="goog-spellcheck-word" style="background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% yellow;">errorr</span>

And so, if you click spellcheck, then publish it without clicking again, those highlights will be published along with the post. The resulting post will look something like this post.

  1. That's really interesting! I didn't know it did that, mostly because I never used the external spellcheck...I have an automatic little squiggly line under any misspelled words I type into Firefox, so that's what I use :P
