Do on-line spell checkers exist? What I would really like is a website where you can paste some text into a text-box and then get it to do a spell check. The reason I ask is that my office computer has all its software installed in Hungarian but I often need to write documents in English.

Has anyone used any of these? I don't want to use one that tries to install anything nasty on my system. Any recommendations?

Checking the first 10, McAfee Siteadvisor, and LinkScanner Online, shows them as safe.

If you are required to do a lot of word processing in English, it might pay to download an English version of, for example, OpenOffice; many free word processors have spellcheck functionality and this would allow you to work independently of internet access.
Google's on-line word processor also has a spell checker.
