This is very interesting. I believe that we are so familiar with the words that we figure them out. I still can't imagine that spelling is important. I guess because it has been drilled into me since I was in Kindergarten. I have to admit I am a huge spell check person and I have to make sure that it is spelled correctly most of the time. I am getting better since there isn't a spell check on mylot that I know of.
