Not off hand, but I know there are a couple of standard utilities (dictd
and ispell) that will do spelling for you.  If there is not already a perl
module for using one of these tools (check cpan.org), I think I could whip
one up for you....Need more info on what you are trying to spell check and
how it should interface to the webpage, though...

Yes speellling errrores would be BAD :)

Have you checked out the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN) at
cpan.org yet?
