Roger,

it might be overkill for your project but there are some public 
spellcheckers available thru SOAP and XML-RPC interfaces, you can post 
your text there, they spellcheck the thing and answer with suggestions. 
Check http://www.xmlrpc.com and http://www.soapware.org for this public 
services, they have index on these pages that should include public 
spellcheckers.

cheers
