OK - I see what you mean. What I can do, is to implement a "quick fix" that will permit you to obtain the word that the spellchecking-engine didn't find in the dictionary although I believe at this point I'm better off implementing the highlighting through selection. Give me a day or two and I will post an updated version of the library. As to adding words to the base-dictionary, this will be possible soon by a small desktop-utility I am writing. However, in a future release of the library, you will be able to add a "user-dictionary" where you can add words that you would like to be considered "as correct" by the library although they are not present (or not correct) in the base-dictionary. This could be useful for words that are spellt (or spelled) differently in British-, American- and Australian-English.
