Hi Xavier,

To improve your spell checker, in case you haven't used it yet:

Levenshtein Distance
http://www.merriampark.com/ld.htm

"Levenshtein distance (LD) is a measure of the similarity between two  
strings, which we will refer to as the source string (s) and the  
target string (t). The distance is the number of deletions,  
insertions, or substitutions required to transform s into t. "
