User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032619 Firefox/3.0b5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008051603 Thunderbird/3.0a2pre ID:2008051603

Thunderbird spell check marks ordinal indicators as incorrectly spelled words. For example "5th" returns a notice that "th" is a misspelled word when spell check is run.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compose new mail message
2. Include ordinal indicator suffix (-st, -nd, etc)
3. Run spell check
Actual Results:  
Number is ignored by spell check, ordinal indicator flagged as incorrect spelling

Expected Results:  
Thunderbird should ignore ordinal indicator

Firefox 3 beta 5 does not flag ordinal indicators as incorrectly spelled words. Problem is specific to Thunderbird.

Haven't checked in on this in a while so can't say when it was fixed, but as of current build this works on Mac OS.
