    Is there some way to save a post as a draft? It'd be a useful feature, methinks.

    spell check is automatic, words get squiggle underlined.

    I think that's a function of your browser. FF has that built in, for IE it's an add-on (google "iespell"); I don't know about chrome, safari, et al.

    I did not know that (imagine the voice). FF just got a little better.

    In the meantime, I've found that drafting long posts works well in Word - they copy in very well, formatting and all <:thumbs up:> Of course, this only works if you will be at the same computer (or carry a thumb drive) for the duration.

    I had been burned by that before and lost my post and had to restart from scratch again. How about a Save as Draft button and an auto save function just like those on GMail
