Check the spelling of different languages

The keyboard that you use to enter text determines the language used by the spelling checker in Microsoft Expression Web. For example, if you use a French keyboard to enter French characters, the text is tagged as French and the spelling is checked based on that language. Otherwise, the spelling checker uses the language that you specify in Expression Web for text, a page, and a website.
