If you also use web forms often with your Internet Explorer for posting comments on sites like PPCW.Net and your mother language isn't English, you might know the problem of spell checking. What I did most times was writing the texts in Outlook or Word, spell checked it there and past it back to the web form.
Thanks to my friend and previous Mobile Devices MVP David Wojciechowski from PPC Drivers (check their Beta site, it's pretty useful for all Pocket PC owners who are in need of drivers for their devices), I can skip this cut & paste now by using ieSpell:

ieSpell is a free Internet Explorer browser extension that spell checks text input boxes on a webpage. It should come in particularly handy for users who do a lot of web-based text entry (e.g. web mails, forums, blogs, diaries). Even if your web application already includes spell checking functionality, you might still want to install this utility because it is definitely much faster than a server-side solution. Plus you get to store and use your personal word list across all your applications, instead of maintaining separate ones on each application.

The program installs as a new button in the IE toolbar (as well as a new menu item under "Tools") - after filling in a form, just hit the ieSpell button and it pops up a dialog, similar to the MS Word spell check.

ieSpell is not spyware or adware. Its free for personal and not-for-profit use. Commercial use requires a separate license.
