Can I check the spell checker in the version of DokuWiki that you have
running on your site, or do I need to grab a devel version?  

I installed Tiger last Sunday, and have not yet installed DokuWiki, but
I will do soon, and so can test how the spell checker runs on Mac OS
(but as Mac OS is a variant of UNIX and provides Apache and PHP (that
you have to activate) by default, I'm not expecting any problems).  BTW
what do you mean by UTF-8 characters?  Do I need to test special

Yes, Safari 2.0.  This version is only available on Tiger; the last
version available for Panther (10.3) is 1.3.

I on longer have Panther (and so the 'old' version of Safari), but might
re-install it for tests (if I can easily create a partition).
