thanks for the info
I just realized that the solution given on the link is not working for designMode. Are you aware of a way to turn it off when on designMode. That is what I am actually worried about.
This is /supposed/ to work. Can you provide a testcase that demonstrates the problem?
I think he was talking about what he also mentioned in bug 333038, comment 28: " The solution to turn off spell checking when not needed for form elements has been introduced with the fix in Bug 339127. And how do we turn it off when we don't need it in designMode? perhaps something similar to execCommand("spellCheck",false,"false");?? " In that way, web designers could control the spell checking ability in designMode documents. I guess this might be a good idea, perhaps this should be raised at the whatwg mailing list?
See bug 333038 comment 29. I hope all the conversation can be kept here, I don't want to try and keep both bugs in sync.

Well, you should check that it works before marking it as such. I intended my "I don't have testcases lying around" comment there to be cautionary.
Created attachment 240555 [details] testcase Ok, here is an example of designMode with spellcheck="false" on the body element, this seems to work just fine.
