I'm not familiar enough with the TMG forum to say, but in my experience
forums generally don't provide spell-check. However, Firefox does
provide spell-check, which thus will work in a forum (usually).
Another option is to compose one's post in a word processor, spell-check
it, then copy/paste to the forum.
Buy the whey, dew knot depend on spell-Czech two fined awl your miss steaks.
