WBOSS is a Web-based spell checker that checks a form field for spelling errors. The user verifies and chooses the changes, then inserts the text back into the form. It is designed to work with any text input form on any Web page. It's called from a second form, opens a pop-up window, lets the user check the text, than inserts the text back into the main window's form field.
