How to Spell-Check a Web Page Using Netscape Composer

1.Start Composer and choose Open from the File menu. Locate the page and double-click to open it.
2.Click on the Tools menu and choose Check Spelling, or click on the Check Spelling button on the toolbar.
3.Make any needed changes suggested by the spell checker.
4.Choose Replace to replace a single word.
5.Select Replace All to replace all instances of that word in the page.
6.Click Ignore to skip over that single word. Choose Ignore All to ignore all instances of that word in the page.
7.Add correct names or words not recognized by the spell checker by clicking on the Learn button. Then, when you use the spell checker again, it will recognize the words.
8.Save the file and click on the Preview button to view it in the Netscape Navigator browser. 
If you want to add words to the spell checker even if they're not used on a particular page, click Edit Dictionary.
The spell checker won’t catch grammatical errors. Reading the text out loud to yourself may help you catch grammatical errors, or you can ask someone else to proof the page.
Words that are grammatically incorrect but are correctly spelled ("your" in place of "you're," for instance) won't be caught by the spell checker.   Steps:
1.Start the Dreamweaver program and open the page to be checked.
2.Open the Text menu and choose Check Spelling, or press Shift+F7.
3.If the checker stops on a word, you have several options. Do one of the following:
4.Add the word to the dictionary by clicking on the Add to Personal button. (Do this if it's a commonly used proper noun or foreign word, such as your last name.) The checker will no longer think the word is misspelled.
5.Skip this instance of the word by clicking on the Ignore button.
6.Skip all instances of this word by clicking on the Ignore All button.
7.Change the word by either typing in the correct word or choosing a word from the list presented. Click Change to change this instance; click Change All to change all instances of this word.
8.Click Close when finished. 
Tips: The default dictionary is English; however, you can download other languages by visiting the Dreamweaver Web site. 
Warnings: While spell-check functions will catch most spelling errors, they will not catch grammatical errors or words spelled correctly but out of context. For good measure, read the content out loud or have someone read it to you. Another trick is to read the text backward.
