Check spelling in one or more pages

Microsoft Expression Web can look for and correct misspelled words in one or more pages, folders, or an entire site. You can also correct or ignore spelling errors directly in the Design view of a web page.

If you don't want Expression Web to mark a particular word as misspelled, you can add it to the default custom dictionary.

   Expression Web provides several options that affect the results provided by the spellchecker, and options to mark spelling errors in Design view and check spelling as you type. In order for Expression Web to mark misspelled words with a wavy line, Check spelling as you type must be selected, and Hide spelling errors must be cleared in the Spelling Options dialog box. For more information, see Set spelling options.

  • In Design view, in your web page, right-click a word that has a wavy red line beneath it, and then in the shortcut menu that appears, do one of the following:

  • To replace the word with a suggested word, select the suggested word.

  • To unmark the word as misspelled, select Ignore All.

  • To add the word to the default custom dictionary so that Expression Web doesn't mark the word as misspelled, select Add.

    • On the Tools menu, point to Spelling, and click Spelling.

    If Expression Web doesn't find any spelling errors, the Microsoft Expression Web dialog box appears and states that the spelling check is complete.

    • To correct the word yourself, in the Change To box, type the correct word.

    • If you want to add the unrecognized word to the default custom dictionary so that Expression Web doesn't mark the word as misspelled, click Add. Skip step 3.

    • To ignore the current instance, click Ignore. Skip step 3.
