How about a really good UK English spell-checker? I think that K-Meleon would be just about perfect then. cool smiley

AFAIK: Extract my attachment and put the two files dic and aff into K-Meleon's spell extensions dictionary folder. Maybe delete en-US?

OK thanks. I have Abiword, is it possible to copy the files ~ british.hash & british.hash-encoding from Abiword into the K-Meleon dictionary folder?

OK, I might give it a go. I am just wondering if it requires any kind of plug-in?

Requires mark307's spell checker extension, available at his, alain's & disrupted's sites.

I copied Thunderbird dic and aff for en-GB, old and new German spelling into the extension's dictionary folder. No special install required. Functional after restart. Underlines errors red.

Right click at a text area (like this) gives access to a context menu entry that lets You change dics. If You right click on errors it offers hints.

OK, thanks for the information. Is that extensions folder underneath the 'Dictionaries' folder & above 'greprefs' with the file un_SpellCheck in it?

As you're talking about un_spellcheck.exe in extension folder under K-Meleon, I beg you use KMES 210 extension.

The folder extension is here just to keep unsetup files and some other files. Unsetup has to be launched from within K-Meleon. You need to install KMES manager another extension which allows you to manage and unsetup extensions.

Unsetup exefile isn't usable outside K-Meleon.

You must put dictionary files in Dictionaries folder.

OK thanks. I thought as much. I thought I might be able to copy a dictionary from Abiword (or some other dictionary I have) into the K-Meleon dictionaries folder.

I copied the UK English dictionary files from SeaMonkey & I now have a choice of UK & US English. It would be nice to have a right-click prompt selection though. I will have to work on this! smiling smiley

Yes, I can select English UK or English US now. Before I only had US English.

I copied en-GB.aff & en-GB.dic from Mozilla.org (SeaMonkey) into K-Meleon's Dictionaries folder.

There is another file in SeaMonkey ~ README_en_GB, but I am not sure what it does.

Open in editor! Explains version info etc.

Possibly =

"This dictionary was initially based on a subset of the 
original English wordlist created by Kevin Atkinson for 
Pspell and  Aspell and thus is covered by his original 
LGPL licence. 

It has been extensively updated by David Bartlett, Brian Kelk
and Andrew Brown:
- numerous Americanism have been removed
- numerous American spellings have been corrected
- missing words have been added
- many errors have been corrected
- compound hyphenated words have been added where appropriate

Valuable inputs to this process were received from many other 
people - far too numerous to name. Serious thanks to you all
for your greatly appreciated help.

This word list is intended to be a good representation of
current modern British English and thus it should be a good 
basis for Commonwealth English in most countries of the world 
outside North America.

The affix file has been created completely from scratch
by David Bartlett and Andrew Brown, based on the published 
rules for MySpell and is also provided under the LGPL.

In creating the affix rules an attempt has been made to 
reproduce the most general rules for English word
formation, rather than merely use it as a means to
compress the size of the dictionary. It is hoped that this
will facilitate future localisation to other variants of
English.

Please let David Bartlett <dwb@openoffice.org> know of any 
errors that you find.

The current release is R 1.18, 11/04/05"

OK, that's interesting, thanks. It would be nice if someone designed a UK English spellchecker for K-Meleon that had right-click prompts, an 'add to dictionary' & 'ignore' function which was easy to download though LOL! Maybe for my future Christmas wish list! grinning smiley

I'm curious about Aspell & ieSpell. I have both of these on my C-Drive. I believe I originally downloaded Aspell for the Opera 9# series spellchecker. ieSpell is for Internet Explorer of course.

I just wondered if anyone has experimented with copying any of the files from these into K-Meleon?

I have test Aspell with k-meleon, and it works bad.

For me, the only which works correctly with K-Meleon is the one you use.

I haven't test the other.
