If I compose a message as follows (between horizontal dashed lines) ------------ Here is the test letter. january January february February march March april April may May June june july July august August september September october October November november december December --------------- the spellchecker claims that some of the lowercase month names are incorrect (i.e. january, february, april, june, july, september, october, november, december), and proposes ridiculous alternative spellings in some cases (e.g. june --> jun, rune, etc.). This seems just wrong, somehow. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. cut text between dashed lines above paste into a composer (or mail) 2. paste into a composer (or mail composition) window 3. run spellcheck (English/US language) Actual Results: Detects incorrect spelling errors. Expected Results: Should be able to spell names of months.
dup of bug 237276?
No, I don't think so. The problem is that, in some cases, spellcheck sees both capitalized and non-capitalized forms as correct (e.g. both 'march' and 'March'), while in other cases it sees only the capitalized form as correct (e.g. 'January' is ok, but 'january' is seen as spelling error). I don't know why this is so -- there is nothing in the dictionary file (en-US.dic) to indicate any distinction between, say, January, and March...
how about the fact that march is a verb (and noun). it's what some kinds of bands do. may is a qualifier thingee. you may not understand what may means, but you can be assured that may is a word and maybe you should consider that, otherwise you will be embarassed. this is either a duplicate or invalid. take your pick.
Resolving as invalid (for now) -- will look at some other spellcheckers, and either reopen or report as a different bug.

verified invalid -- other spellcheckers do the same thing (modulo better support for lower/upper case rules -- see bug 128122 )
