reporter, Netscape is planning a major overhaul of the Help files,
so you might want to wait until that happens.

reference to spelling checking removed in latest help file overhaul.
Not sure if we need to explain "confirm when using keyboard shortcut to send

Severity: trivial → minor

If the overhaul has been done, then go ahead and resolve this as fixed.  It 
was certainly a problem when I reported it so it can't be "worksforme".
