thanks for your help as a spelling checker.
actually soem [example here of flipped letters] of it is that i can't
touch type but i keep trying and pine does not have a very good spelling
checker. when i write for publication i get my husband to proof read for
me and also gedit has a much better spellin' checker than pine. he has
that OCD type personality which focuses on the trees rather than the
forest and makes him a very good speller (plus he went to only one school
prior to college which means he did not hear words with different
can you imagine learning fo-net-ic spellin' in northern flor-da for a
couple of years and then having to relearn it in new england?
when i took spanish and french my spelling was much better in those
languages - the grammer and ability to communicate my ideas was much much
worse but what i did write was spelled correctly.
forest - trees your choice.
